During and after a DDoS attack, ask for help. Your regional CSIRT (Computer Security Incident Response Team) should be alerted, as they have expertise and contacts that can not only help you during the attack, but also start the process of figuring out who did it and how. A global list is available here: http://www.cert.org/csirts/national/contact.html

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are able to take out an entire site in a matter of minutes. Firewalls and traditional tools like intrusion detection and prevention systems cannot always mitigate the security risks associated with these threats.

New techniques and technologies in DDoS attacks can be more aggressive than their DoS predecessors and require a different kind of approach to network security. This slideshow features some of the tricks and tools, identified by Jim MacLeod, product manager at WildPackets, that can be employed to hinder the flow of a DDoS attack.
