DDoS is an acronym for Distributed Denial of Service Attack. A type of denial of service attack in which an attacker uses malicious code installed on various computers to attack a single target. An attacker may use this method to have a greater effect on the target than is possible with a single attacking machine. As a BraveWay user, you are ultimately responsible for making sure that your account is secured, and that no rootkits or viruses are on your server.

Violation of this Inbound/Outbound DDoS policy will result in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged violation of this policy, whether your server has become the victim of a DDoS Attack or you are deliberately performing the DDoS, BraveWay will invoice the client $10 per DDoS incident and initiate an immediate investigation. During the investigation, BraveWay may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our DDoS policy, BraveWay may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer’s account.
As our Customers are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients over the BraveWay network, it is advisable that Customers develop a similar, or stricter, policy for their clients.
