Slow Read


A slow read attack is a type of DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack that sends legitimate application layer requests but reads responses very slowly. By reading the responses very slowly the server's connection pool is exhausted and prevents the server from incurring an idle connection timeout. It is achieved by advertising a very small number for the TCP Receive Window size, and at the same time emptying clients' TCP receive buffer slowly, which causes a very low data flow rate.
