Suggested article: What is a Smurf DDoS attack?

The Smurf attack is a form of a DDoS attack that occurs at the network layer. It is a protocol-based attack that uses the popular Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) to send ping packets of data with a spoofed IP address of the source, thanks to malicious software.

DDoS Smurf attack types:

  • Basic - it is flooding a network with ping packets that have spoofed the victim's IP address.
  • Advanced - It looks similar to the Basic one. The Advanced can spoof the IP addresses of the packets in a way that it can send the response to more than one target.

Smurf attacks mitigation:

  • Use DDoS protection service
  • Forbid the ICMP traffic
  • Stop packets with a broadcast IP address
