Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  flood v. [common] 1. To overwhelm a network channel with
     mechanically-generated traffic; especially used of IP, TCP/IP, UDP, or
     ICMP denial-of-service attacks. 2. To dump large amounts of text onto an
     IRC channel. This is especially rude when the text is uninteresting
     and the other users are trying to carry on a serious conversation. Also
     used in a similar sense on Usenet. 3. [Usenet] To post an unusually
     large number or volume of files on a related topic.
  
  

Din dicționarul The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (27 SEP 03) :

  flood
       
           On a real-time network (whether at the level of
          TCP/IP, or at the level of, say, IRC), to send a huge
          amount of data to another user (or a group of users, in a
          channel) in an attempt to annoy him, lock his terminal, or to
          overflow his network buffer and thus lose his network
          connection.
       
          The basic principles of flooding are that you should have
          better network bandwidth than the person you're trying to
          flood, and that what you do to flood them (e.g., generate ping
          requests) should be *less* resource-expensive for your machine
          to produce than for the victim's machine to deal with.  There
          is also the corrolary that you should avoid being caught.
       
          Failure to follow these principles regularly produces
          hilarious results, e.g., an IRC user flooding himself off the
          network while his intended victim is unharmed, the attacker's
          flood attempt being detected, and him being banned from the
          network in semi-perpetuity.
       
          See also pingflood, clonebot and botwar.
