Please explain how DDOS attack differs from DOS attacks. DDos and DoS Attacks

DoS Attacks and DDoS Attacks 

Cybercriminals can use a Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS), or DoS attack to stop an application from working properly. These two methods of attack have some important differences. DDoS attacks are an attack that involves multiple sources attacking the same target. This makes it hard to identify the attackers and stop the attack. While a DoS attack is a coordinated attack from one source, it aims to overwhelm the target and prevent legitimate traffic requests from being processed (Samantha 2019).   Botnets are groups of computers infected by malicious code that can be controlled and managed by an attacker. By sending large quantities of junk traffic to a server, an attacker can overwhelm it and knock it down more efficiently (Zhao, et al. 2015). A DoS attack, on the other hand, is typically carried out by one system and involves flooding the target system with too many requests. (Saxena, 2021).   While both DoS attacks and DDoS attacks are intended to deprive the service of its services, they have different methods and natures.
