The Social Liberal Party of Democrats 66 in the Netherlands can legalize DDoS attacks, since they can be considered as a form of protest, according to the publication globalpost. The party’s statement says that often some forms of online protests are mistaken for hacker attacks. This was the reason for the publication to assume that the Democrats 66 meant by "protests" DDoS attacks.

At the same time, RT TV channel reported that the opposition party intends to legalize DDoS attacks. As expected, for the legalization of the attack, its organizers will need to warn the owners of the resource-victim in advance, so that they have time to prepare.

According to the representative of the Democrats 66 Case, Verhoeven, the party is currently preparing a law that will protect both online and offline protests. In the Dutch parliament, the Democrats 66 led the movement for Internet freedom, writes globalpost - for example, the party opposed the anti-piracy bill ACTA. The number of representatives of the party in the House of Representatives of the Netherlands is ten deputies, and in the Senate - five.

DDoS attack is the formation of a large number of requests for the resource-victim, because of which the site server can not withstand the load, and the site either opens slowly or does not open at all for a while. Often, attacks involve the use of infected computers in the organization, which, when commanded from a remote server, begin simultaneously trying to gain access to a specified site. However, there are special services through which users can voluntarily join the attack on the site. One of the most popular applications for such attacks is the Low-Orbit Ion Gun (LOIC).
Meanwhile, earlier it was reported that experts estimate the annual damage to the world economy from cybercrime at $ 114 billion.

Of course, the well-known proverb says "Warned, it means armed." Protection from DDoS attacks from FLOWSPEC is a powerful weapon with which any DDoS attacks on your site will be repulsed.
