Relatively low volume flood attacks that sneak below the thresholds of high bandwidth networks. When protecting a large-scale network, service providers are forced to use high baselines and triggers in their DDoS protection solution; This enables relatively low volume flood attacks to go forward undetected directly to the end customer and overwhelm his protection. Phantom flood attacks are attacks you know they are there because you can observe the damage, but you cannot detect them due to the high bandwidth protection limitations.
