Google as DoS Tool?
This is a technique that can be used to launch a denial of service attack against a website hosted on Amazon (or even elsewhere). The steps:
- Gather a large number of URLs from the targeted website. Preferably big media files (jpg, pdf, etc)
- Put these URLs in a Google feed, or just put them in a Google Spreadsheet
- Put the feed into a Google service, or use the image(url) command in Google spreadsheet
- Sit back and enjoy seeing Google launching a Slashdot-style denial of service attack against your target.
