Countermeasures for DDoS attacks in Cyber Space

The internet was designed to share information seamlessly between multiple connected devices. But lack of security measures turned the heads of cybercriminals. Now, security is the crucial factor to design any kind of connected technologies. In 1988, a self-replicating computer program called the Morris Worm involuntarily caused about 10% of ARPANET machines glitch by weakening its computer resources. Today, with over 4 billion users, the internet has become an inevitable part of businesses and individuals. The downside of all this accessibility is vulnerability to disruption. Malicious users are often able to steal information or halt business operations, with motives ranging from industrial espionage and revenge to financial gain.
