Flash crowds and DDOS attacks have very similar properties in terms of internet traffic. DDOS attacks are malicious requests that does not need to be handled by a server and flash crowd consist of legitimate requests, the server has responsibility to handle as many requests as possible during a flash event. So the attack flows are generated by the same pre built programs (attack tools), whereas the flash crowds come from the randomly distributed users all over the Internet.
