DOS Attacks can cause headache

by RWalter In reply to Mitigate DoS attacks with ...

I have worked at an organization for longer than I would like to mention, but during my time here I have noticed instances where DOS attachs from outside people have caused our network to sometimes come to a complete stop. After running a trace back to the source of where we believed these DOS attachs were coming from we were undecided on whether or not to get the Law enforcement involved. Instead we just handled it ourselves but left the threat there still that we would if this kept up. We have not had any issues since this occurence but if faced with this again I would probably would get the Law involved.
