Cyber attacks have been in the news this week as reports of attacks on U.S. and South Korean Government websites and some private companies have been reported.
At NCSA we believe it’s important for everyone to have some understanding of cyber attacks since in fact almost any computer can be used to facilitate such attacks through the use of botnets. An article on Yahoo! News today simplifies for the general public the denial of service attacks. Take some time to understand how these attacks works and some signs that you computer might be involved.
