Layer 7 HTTP Flood – Cache Bypass

Layer 7 HTTP Flood – Cache Bypass is the smartest type of attack.

The attackers try to use URLs that cause the most damage making the site use up all of its resources without being cached. For example, an attack can do random dictionary searches for “news”, “gov”, “faith”, which will consume a lot from the site and will not easily be detected since it looks like a normal user’s search habits.
