[DoS Attack] LOIC Tutorial Black_X
Denial-of-service attacks, though frowned upon, can be a very effective tool. Essentially, the attack works by simply over-whelming a computer or network with excessive traffic. Denial-of-service attacks, hereby referred to as DoS attacks, require little to no experience to implement. As such, those who implement these attacks are often portrayed in an unfavorable fashion. Before we continue I must encourage you to contribute to our operations in any other way that you can.
There are many types of DoS attacks but for the purpose of this tutorial we will be concentrating on how to implement a DoS attack using LOIC, Low Orbit Ion Cannon. If you are interested in other types of DoS attacks you can research the subject independently here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack

To begin, you need to identify the IP address of the server you will be attacking. Doing so can be simple but often times it is more complicated than just typing the URL into LOIC and clicking the Lock On button. Doing this will provide you with the IP address of the server; However, larger websites and, often times, government websites will be using more than one server. It is important to remember that these attacks are only successful if a large number of individuals are attacking the same server simultaneously.
Once you have identified the IP address and have locked onto a target you will need to configure LOIC for the attack. Much of the configurations will be personal preference but ideally you will set the thread count to 1000, enable the wait for reply checkbox and connect to port 80. Once LOIC has been configured start the attack by clicking the “IMMA CHARGIN MAH LAZER” button.
