PS4 DDOS is a malicious attempt to disrupt normal traffic of a PS4 Gamer/Player by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.

PS4 DDOS vs DOS

The differences between regular and distributed denial of service assaults are substantive. In a DoS attack, a perpetrator uses a single Internet connection to either exploit a software vulnerability or flood a target with fake requests—usually in an attempt to exhaust server resources (e.g., RAM and CPU).

On the other hand, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are launched from multiple connected devices that are distributed across the Internet. These multi-person, multi-device barrages are generally harder to deflect, mostly due to the sheer volume of devices involved. Unlike single-source DoS attacks, DDoS assaults tend to target the network infrastructure in an attempt to saturate it with huge volumes of traffic.

DDoS attacks also differ in the manner of their execution. Broadly speaking, denial of service attacks are launched using homebrewed scripts or DoS tools (e.g., Low Orbit Ion Canon), while DDoS attacks are launched from botnets — large clusters of connected devices (e.g., cellphones, PCs or routers) infected with malware that allows remote control by an attacker.

How to block and stop DDOS attacks on PS4

As you can see from the above steps on how we boot people offline, the most important information an attacker needed, was your IP address. Blocking such attacks, we only need to fool the gamer/players that want to boot you offline. In doing so, they will boot a wrong IP address and your network won’t be saturated.

Our recommendation is to connect your PS4 to a VPN before you play online. Get our limited 35% discount from Express VPN below and make sure you will never be booted offline again!
