I have used LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Cannon) earlier . Today i was reading on wikipedia that there are many types of dos attacks , namely SYN attacks , HTTP flooding ,UDP flooding ,etc and two questions striked my mind .

1)I want to know which type of attack can LOIC do ?

2)Can anyone list the examples of dos attacks in different osi layers ?

  • "Denial of Service" is a broad category of attack. Trying to list them all is not going to be helpful. – schroeder Jul 23 '14 at 23:19
  • Thanks for comment . Can you tell me html and syn flooding are which level attacks ? – kishan keswani Jul 23 '14 at 23:29
  • If you read any of the documentation on LOID, it tells you this. This question is not on topic here - it is not a security question. – Rory Alsop Jul 24 '14 at 9:42

According to Wikipedia TCP and UDP flood. The list of attacks is too long to name all of them. I think it will be good exercises for you to do it alone. It's easy for example TCP flood will operate on layer 4 because UDP is operating on this layer(Transport layer).

  • According to the screenshot, you can enter a URL which suggests it can also do HTTP flooding. – Ladadadada Jul 23 '14 at 23:21
  • What about syn flooding and html flooding? – kishan keswani Jul 23 '14 at 23:22

    @hellruler What do you mean "HTML flooding"? That's not a term I'm familiar with (or can find anywhere online). – christianbundy Mar 15 '15 at 3:47
