  • 4. Bitcoin was a target of a recent DDoS attack that resulted in a heist reportedly worth around USD $105,792,000 (Threatpost). Elsewhere, a tweet was sent from the official Twitter account of the Associated Press (AP) to all of its followers, which claimed: previously on 24… “Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured.” (Washington Post)
  • 5. In some respects DDoS attacks are on their way down, but the general trend is up: as with all thrillers, nothing is certain “There were 57% more DDoS attacks in Q4 2014 than in the same period of 2013” Infosecurity Magazine 57%
  • 6. There’s no room to be complacent. New trends are constantly emerging which make successful cyber attacks even more challenging to deal with. Businesses will need to identify and filter anomalous traffic quickly to prevent their available bandwidth being consumed entirely. stay alert “The average peak packets per second in an attack increased by 366% over the course the year to Q3 2014” “Average attack bandwidth increased by 389% between 2013 and 2014.” Akamai’s State of the Internet Security report Q3 2014 the biggest crime rates in the room today

Attacks have also become more sophisticated, using greater automation, and reducing reliance on compromised machines to do the heavy lifting. cyber attacks are becoming more complex “Nearly 40% of all DDoS attacks used reflection techniques, which rely on internet protocols that respond with more traffic than they receive and do not require an attacker to gain control over the server or device.” Infosecurity Magazine
  • 8. Antivirus and anti-malware are only part of the story when it comes to limiting DDoS reach within the corporate network. Cybercriminals now exploit multiple attack vectors to cause maximum disruption: the threats are more sophisticated “More than 44% of all attacks used multiple attack vectors – representing an 84% increase on 2013 figures.” IQ4 2014 State of the Internet – Security – Akamai Technologies

The best place to stop attacks is at the service provider’s infrastructure, long before traffic can touch your corporate network.
