Distributed reflection Denial of Service (DDoS) is the recent iteration in the series of denial of service attacks. It works similar to distributed denial of service. In that it uses many sources to attack one victim and the attacker hides behind the zombies. DDoS presents a serious threat to the Internet since its inception, where lots of controlled hosts flood the victim site with huge packets. Moreover, in Distributed Reflection DoS (DRDoS), attackers fool innocent servers into flushing packets to the victim.
