    4. @administrator # generally, its not ddos, but actually just 'DoS'. I say this because in all likelyhood a hacker is not going to spread a virus in order to DDoS us, but a couple of parasprites will individually DoS us.

      1. @luna What if it's one hacker, but with a large pre-existing botnet?

        1. @starshine Then its DDoS. A good rule of thumb, its not DDoS unless you have significantly more DoS-ing computers than hackers. And generally DDoS is only one hacker, 1000's of computers.
