    We don't attack as we have better things to do and if would like to spend money that goes into organizing such attacks on bettering our own forum.

    We had to ask for donations for the new defence, we have nothing to spare for attacks even if we wanted to :D

    Almost 25000 guests. This just shows that DFI is the new buzz word on the net.

    I know. What I meant was that since DFI had become very popular so we were targeted.

    Yusuf are we sure launching attacks takes so much of funds? I've heard there are software tools that automate DDoS to a large extent and that its just a matter of laying hands on one such tool, knowing how to use it.

    Even if we use some thing edited we would need 100's and 1000's to be doing at same time, But what i think is we should not use such cheap tactics we are not paki's lol we are INDIANS

    DDOS attacks are not expensive. All you need is a decent internet connection, a good computer, a nice malware that can hijack other computers.

    Before an attack, the server can take over infected PCs(bots) and initiate attacks from the infected PCs. No self respecting hacker will even initiate an attack from his own PC. The owner of the bot is the guy who does all the spending without knowing it. Of course, for a successful attack a lot of bots are required. So, numbers can be in thousands to tens of thousands.

    There are a few choices on how you can get these bots. Hackers can auction a number of bots to others hackers who want to initiate such attacks for a certain fee for every hour. This can get expensive depending on the organization that you are attacking. Very cheap if you hit an international bank, but expensive if attacking a defence forum. But for a hacker who already has all the bots required, it can get as cheap as your regular monthly subscription with your ISP to initiate the attacks and keep it going for long periods of time.

    You can say it is the duty of every individual to ensure his/her computer is not a bot. When you don't allow any random guy entering your house, you need to have the same safety protocol with your computer too. This will help ensure bots are never created in the first place.

    DFI will not indulge in Ddosing others. Whether it is easy or tough or cheap or expensive.

    If some of you are upto tricks, then it is upto you. Please ensure there is no blowback that affects DFI or other Indian sites.

    What kind of DDOS? ICMP or HTTP Requests or is it a matter of DNS replies? Ofcourse, it is hard to determine exactly which.
