Shouldn't we do something regarding this and the other DOS (denial of service attack)?

Denial of Service is DoS, so I don't think we should change it, except that we can add a disambiguation page.

Yes, that's what I meant, a disambiguation page!

Isn't DDoS a more common term? I haven't heard anyone refer to it as a Denial of Service attack. Usually it is a Direct Denial of Service Attack.

Well, the D in DDoS stands for 'distributed', meaning it is carried by multiple computers.
