Malicious tools are malicious programs designed to automatically create viruses, worms, or Trojans, conduct DoS attacks on remote servers, hack other computers, etc. Unlike viruses, worms, and Trojans, malware in this subclass does not present a direct threat to the computer it runs on, and the program’s malicious payload is only delivered on the direct order of the user.
DoS programs are designed to conduct DoS (Denial of Service) attacks on a victim computer. Essentially, these attacks send numerous requests to a remote computer, and if the computer does not have enough resources to process all the incoming requests, the result will be a denial of service.Win32
