Cloud computing provides its user a lot of advantages but this technology has quite a bit of flaws as well. One of main flaw in cloud is the security present in the cloud. There are various threats, attacks and security issues that pertain in cloud. Among all the attacks DoS is a crucial one. The main aim of this attack is to bring down the services and resources and thus effecting everyone who is accessing the resource. This paper discusses about the Denial of Service attack or DoS attack in

Cloud helps to reduce the cost; it provides global accessibility, unlimited storage capacity, improved performance and many more advantages but apart from providing a lot of benefits there are various issues which are associated with cloud. One of the major issues associated with cloud is the security associated with the cloud. As we know in cloud every user has access to the data residing in the cloud so security of data is a major concern. Apart from the data security there are several threats like manin-the-middle, spoofing/sniffing, account or service hijacking etc. These threats aims to make the services of cloud weaker and sometimes even bring down them down.
