Denial of Service and the Distributed Denial of Service Attacks have recently emerged as one of the most newsworthy, if not the greatest, weaknesses of the Internet. This paper attempt to explain how they work, why they are hard to combat today, and what will need to happen if they are to be brought under control. It is divided into eight sections. The first is an overview of the current situation and also brief explanatory of the rest of the chapters being covered. The second is a detailed description of exactly how this attack works, and why it is hard to cope with today; of necessity it includes a description of how the Internet works today. The third section is totally about the different attacks in recent years and how they affected the people or the bigorganizations. The fourth section describes the short-term prospects, the tools which are used to rectify these attacks. The fifth is problems being faced with an explanatory of the percentage of attack in recent years and comparing the problems. The sixth is what can be done today to help alleviate this problem. The seventh section describes the legal actions and also legal actions that can be followed against the attack by the victim; and the eighth section describes the long-term picture, what will change to bring this class of problem under control, if not eliminate it entirely. And finally there are some appendices: a bibliography, giving references to original research work and announcements; a brief article on securing servers; and acknowledgments for the many people who helped make this paper possible.
