    my interpretation:

    suppose thousands of computers send requests to a server simultaneously

    the server cant handle it, right?

    so it would crash

    hackers put software into people's computers which would target a server at a specified time, something like a mass-time-bomb-attack

    thats just my interpretation, cud be wrong though
