Although, actually, if any of you knew about these things, you'd know a lot of buffer overflows don't need speed and power, and a fast connection, because it's not a DoS attack. Buffers can sit and wait to be filled up with information, so some BO exploits can be done on a 9,600 modem, if you wish.

Tehehehe steeld is right...
DoS or DDoS partially depends on speed not buffer overflows.
Just 2 very simple examples to ******** things;
1. to cause an overflow;
You push a large data into a stack which cannot handle that much data correctly at a time. Check for the popular ftpds' buffer overflow problems to see that (eg: adding 200 characters to a directory input...)
2. to make a Denial of Services or Distributed Denial of Services;
What the code red's aim was.
First it captured many zombie computers, then it caused them to request a simple page for many times. If 1 computer requests a page every 5 seconds and if this process is done with a million of computers, guess what?
If this kind of attack is made via only one source then that's called DoS and if there are more than 1 source that is called DDoS.
