TCP SYN attack
Last modified: Friday, September 09, 2005 

A sender transmits a volume of connections that cannot be completed. This causes the connection queues to fill up, thereby denying service to legitimate TCP users. A TCP SYN attack (also called SYN attack) is a common type of Denial of Service attack.

See also DoS attack.
