ICMP Attacks

[L4] ICMP Flood

How does this attack type works ?

  • This attack is focused to overwhelm the target host resources.

What does it means in practical terms ?

  • Within this attack type, generally your server will just become unavailable for any type of external request that try to legitimately connect to any of your services.
  • It may use or not, all the available bandwidth on your host or datacenter.
  • In this case, while this attack is being performed, you may notice a high cpu, network and memory usage.
  • The zombie bots in the example, can either be infected regular user computers or compromised servers in any organization.

[L4] Smurf Amplification

How does this attack type works ?

  • This attack is focused to use the whole target host or datacenter available bandwidth.

What does it means in practical terms ?

  • Within this attack type, generally your server will just become unavailable for any type of external request that try to legitimately connect to any of your services.
  • It will use all the available bandwidth on your host or datacenter until everything becomes offline.
  • The main characteristic of this attack, is that the master will control a list of several compromised networks, which may amplify the ICMP echo requests.
  • While the amplification factor, is smaller compared to the UDP DNS Amplification method, it is still very effective accomplishing the proposed task.
  • The zombie bots in the example, can either be infected regular user computers or compromised servers in any organization.
