Lately there have been a lot of new kinds of ddos attacks coming up.I have been seeing a lot of this one where it actually uses the zombie computers browser and requests pages over and over unless it is just a good user agent spoof. Anyway they are using these type of attacks on php/mysql sites because it will take down a server easier with less bots. And it is usually pretty hard to fight off these type of attacks because they hardly ever build up enough connections to make anti-dos features or my firewall fire off. So its a constant battle. Now, would it be better to turn off compression completely during these type of attacks? Seems like it would use less cpu this way but would cost more bandwidth. As far as the balance of bandwidth vs cpu which one would be a better choice? Surely using the dynamic compression on 1 does not save that much bandwidth, or does it?
