I am being DDoSed, what do I do?

What do you do when you are a victim of a DDoS attack?

First thing you need to understand is that a DDoS attack is a crime, you should gather all the information about the attacker you can.  In most cases the attacker will get on your server and make demands (which turns it into a more serious crime) or they will turn your server off (DDoS it offline).  If this happens you should immediately look up the IP address that the person used to connected to your server with and the name the person is using, take note of the time and date of when it happened.  Inform the person that a DDoS attack is a crime and you will be reporting it, and tell them that they need to leave (if they do not leave the server then ban them).  The most important thing is to stay calm.

After you have gathered this information you should report it to the IC3: https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
