DoS Pronunciation

DoS Description

①A Denial-of-Service attack (DoS) is when someone arranges for multiple computers to open a website. This then stops the ability for everyone else to access the website as there is too much traffic flowing to it. People who have slower internet connections, such as dial-up, are affected more by attacks.

②DOS, an acronym for Disk Operating System, is a common shorthand for MS-DOS, IBM PC DOS, and several compatible operating systems for personal computers.
