What is DDos?
The one key knowledge about the internet and the multitudes of websites that it hosts is that these are hosted on a server. However, it is common knowledge that every web server is limited with an individual capacity to handle requests at a given point in time.
The trick to perform a DDos is to overload the web server or the operating system with multiple requests simultaneously. Since the website server is overloaded it will not be able to handle the requests which will result the system to hang and eventually shuts down inevitably.
Since the server shuts down it crashes the website or takes it down temporarily. The trick is that when you DDos a website, it results to the website losing the allotted bandwidth hence resulting to crash a website. Overburdening a network with enormous amount of requests simultaneously will result in discontinuation of the transmission of data between a server and a user website.
How To DDos An IP Or Website?
This entire process to DDos an IP causes a website to go temporary in a down state or suffer a server inaccessible problem. The only way to bring the server up and running is by the system administrator analysing all requests resulting from the DDos a website.
Below are a few methods on how to DDos a website or an IP. These are the commands mentioned below which need to be followed to result the crash of a server.
How To DDos Website Manually Using Command Prompt
Fine Compatible Website
Find a website that is small and compatible and you want to DDos attack
Search IP Address
Search the IP address of this website. In order to fetch this IP address use the command:
ping www.example.com –t
You will get an IP address which looks similar to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and has numbers
Type Following Command
Next type the command: ping [ip address] -t -l 65500
Run The Command For Long Time
Now run this command for a long time, preferably for several hours. If feasible use multiple computers to execute this command simultaneously
Visit Website After Few Hours
Visit the website after a few hours
The website will show “server unavailable” or “website is temporary down” message
A quick note to remember is that your internet connection should have an unlimited bandwidth or it will result in the loss of bandwidth to perform this task.
LOIC Automatic DDos Attack For Website:
If you aim to shut down a website completely, you will require the help of the tool named LOIC, also the abbreviation for Low Orbit Ion Canon. Below are the steps to how to DDos any website using this tool:
Download LOIC Software
First you will need to download the LOIC software from the link given below:
Extract It To Desktop
After the software is downloaded, extract it to the Windows desktop
No Installation Required
When you double click the icon the software will open. It is a portable software hence requires no installation process
Insert the website URL that you wish to crash
Enter IP Address (Optional)
Though it is not required but you can also put the IP address in the IP field, which you can find from the ping command on Windows
Press Lock On
Next press the “lock on” tab
Under the option ‘Attack‘ -> Don’t make changes to timeout, HTTP ssubsite or the speed bar
TCP/UDP Message Option
Under the option ‘TCP/UDP Message‘ -> you can choose to mention whatever you want
Under the option ‘Port‘ -> change it to the value of the target website to be hacked (the value “80” works for most cases)
Under the option ‘Method‘ -> select the option UDP from a dropdown menu
Change Thread Value
In case you have a really good computer you can change the thread value to 20, or the default 10 should work fine
Press IIMA CHARGIN MAH LAZER
Now press the “IIMA CHARGIN MAH LAZER” button
Run this software for a minimum of one hour. After an hour visit the targeted website. It will show an error message called “Service Unavailable“.
Use Google Spreadsheet To DDos an IP Or Website
It is a known fact that Google uses a ‘feedfetcher crawler‘ in order to capture the image and then it displays the cache image. Similarly, Google also uses the similar technique for Google Spreadsheet to cache and display any image which is commanded inside =image(“”) value.
For instance, if you input =image(“http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/LOIC.png”) function in a Google spreadsheet, it will fetch the image and then display it from the cache.
The trick here is, if you use a random parameter request, it commands feed fetcher crawler to skulk the very same file numerous times. However, if one uses a large pdf file link, Google feedfetcher crawler will be unable to fetch anything. Though, it will crawl the same website several times which will result in a stacks of outgoing bandwidth hence resulting in a traffic loss. The best part about this trick is that it results in no loss of your bandwidth, since it is fetching nothing.
A targeted traffic of up to 250GB can be executed within as less as 45 minutes using a single laptop.
