Amplification Attack

An Amplification Attack is a type of DDoS attack that uses various internet protocols to multiply the size of each request sent to overwhelm a network’s bandwidth.

These volumetric attacks create congestion by consuming all available bandwidth between the target and the Internet.

Since amplification is used, large amounts of data are sent to a target by amplification or another means of creating massive traffic, such as requests from a botnet.
