Italy's Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) has disclosed recent DDoS attacks against crucial government sites in the country over the past couple of days.

DDoS (distributed denial of service) is an attack that aims to deplete a server's available resources, making it unable to respond to legitimate user requests and rendering the sites it hosts inaccessible.
