C0D4708133yIs it DoS or DDoS?
But either way, it can be
@C0D4 I'd say DoS in this case as a DDoS would imply shitloads oof devices...
rocktim4653y@C0D4 depends. I would say DoS cause it might not be intentional. I see many newbie developers spamming an api to make their web application real-time.Like creating sites like YouTube real time sub counting app by requesing the api every 2 sec . which might cause DoS unintentionally.
C0D4708133y@rocktim so DoS but I doubt it's malicious if it's script kiddies making bots or scrapers.

@rocktim For the record, it doesn't matter whether or not its malicious, a DoS is a DoS.
Only when coming from a huge amount of different origins, it becomes a DDoS.
Api spamming is another form of DDoS. Isn't it?
