The article that you are about to read is going to be a punch to your face because I am going to be brutally honest. I believe honesty is the best policy. My day job is computer security, so I know a fair amount about DDoS attacks.
It is very easy to DDoS someone on Skype, I am going to tell you how to do it in 3 easy steps.
#1. Figuring out the Skype username of the user.
For many years now, even to this day, you can get someones IP address within a minute. The first thing you have to do is find out what the persons Skype username is. There is a search function in Skype which allows you to pretty easily find anyone on Skype.
There is the search function. Then, all you have to do is right click one of the profiles that is your target, and it will give their skype name, for instance “john.doe”, or maybe it’s “johndoe53″.
#2. Use the Skype username to figure out their IP address.
Now that you have the persons Skype username, you can go to a number of websites, which will rename nameless, to resolve the persons Skype username into a IP address.
It’s easy as entering a persons Skype username.
#3. DDoS the persons IP address.
Now that you have the IP address of the user you have specifically targeted, you can use one of the many online websites that allow you to DDoS the persons IP.
Among my research, I found dozens of websites that offer this same sole purpose, which is to DDoS an IP address, which knocks them off the internet for an extended period of time.
Now, you see how EASY it is to get DDoSed using Skype, which is why you will understand my next piece of advise very clearly.
How do you stop getting DDoSed on Skype? Stop using Skype! There are some temporary ways to hide your IP, but it doesn’t last very long, and there are ways around that.
Instead of using Skype, I highly recommend the newly released, “MegaChat”, which is announced as the “Skype Killer”. The CEO of this service, Kim Dotcom (A name you may be familiar with), has set up MegaChat along with the service Mega, to be secure, which is its number one mission.
Mega is a new service, which can be accessed here: mega.nz, which allows you to back up your computer, or transfer files to people, securely. As you may have heard recently, several government agencies have been putting back-doors into big corporate software. With Mega, your information is encrypted and secure. With Mega, you get access to MegaChat and any other software the is released, which I believe is more to come.
