How to prevent PS4 ddos and booter attacks
As you can see from the above steps on how we can use a PS4 booter, the most important information an attacker needed, was your IP address. Defending DDOS attacks, we only need to fool the gamer/players that want to boot you offline. In doing so, they will boot a wrong IP address that has DDOS protection and your network won’t be saturated.
Our recommendation is to connect your Playstation to a VPN before you play any games to make sure you will never get booted offline again!
Not only will a VPN help with DDOS protection but it will keep your browsing private, increase download speeds and allow you to watch Netflix/Amazon prime in different countries.
