Brute force:
This attack uses the entry point of Drupal, Joomla and WordPress easily. Hackers can trace your password to log in into the application.
  • Flood attack: The flood attack configures some more attacks known as SYNFLOOD attack, DDOS (Distributed Denial of service) and DOS (Denial of service). It uses the protocol, ports and connection to make changes to your server.
At first, your server may get slow down but the traffic maintains a same number of visitors. A high number of CPU loads may suit with more number of loads normally.

grep processor /proc/cpuinfo ¦ wc –l
You may get swapping messages repeatedly in the control panel. It is necessary for you to keep on scanning all those logfiles at the same time. Whenever you get more memory storage in the CPU it means you have a problem with the PHP script and the level of the software you used.

cat /proc/meminfo or top
