Articles [Viewpoint] Bracing for cyberattack before G-20
In order to improve the security of the G-20 Summit, organizers should prepare for possible cyberterrorism.
Articles Targeted Malware Grows Ever More Sophisticated
Up until now, malware writers have been motivated by money. The era of malware-writing for fun was over long, long ago.
Articles New commercial DDoS botnet discovered
Researchers have discovered a fast-growing botnet that was designed as part of a commercial service for launching distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against any target.
Articles DDoS botnet family discovered targeting scores of sites
A new family of bots is responsible for nearly 200 distributed denial-of-service attacks targeting websites in China, the United States, South Korea and Germany, according to researchers at security firm Arbor Networks
Articles Denial of Service and Distributed Denial of Service protection
The degraded service and lost business from a Denial of Service (DoS) attack can lead to staggering costs both during and after an attack. Targeted DoS attacks are on the rise and beyond the immediate costs, the lasting effects of a successful DoS attack include lost customers, loss of faith in the service's dependability, and damage to the corporate brand.
Articles Five Percent of Web Traffic Caused by DDoS Attacks.
Since beginning the research, Arbor Network's chief research officer Danny McPherson claims there were over one million denial of service attacks — roughly 1,300 per day — across the ISP networks involved in the study, which has already run for 18 months.
Articles Massive DDoS Attack Hit DNS Root Servers.
A massive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack (define) of unknown origin briefly interrupted Web traffic on nine of the 13 DNS "root" servers that control the Internet but experts on Wednesday dismissed the overall threat as "minimal."
Articles DDoS Background.
As DDoS torrent do not have ordinary distinctiveness, at present obtainable imposition recognition systems (IDS) cannot notice them precisely. As a consequence, defend DDoS attacks based on present obtainable IDS will radically affect lawful traffic. In this document, we suggest a distributed approach to defend touching distributed denial of service attacks by managing across the Internet.
Articles Mind the Egress When Filtering for Security.
Banks put a great deal of effort into preventing robbers getting into high security vaults because that's where the money is. At the risk of sounding obvious, robbers getting in is only half the problem: It's when the robbers get out again — with the money — that banks really suffer.
Articles Distributed Denial of Service.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have turn into a large dilemma for users of computer systems associated to the Internet. DDoS attackers hijack secondary victim systems using them to wage a coordinated large-scale attack against primary victim systems. As new countermeasures are developed to prevent or mitigate DDoS attacks, attackers are constantly developing new methods to circumvent these new counter measures.
Articles What is a Denial of Service Attack?
Denial of Service (DoS) attacks are network-based attacks that preclude right to use to a service. DoS attacks immobilize a network service by flooding links, rashing servers or programs operation on the servers, draining server possessions, or else avoiding lawful clients from admittance the network service.
Articles DDoS Attacks.
One type of attack on computer systems is known as a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. A Denial of Service attack is intended to stop genuine users from using a system. Customary Dos attacks are done by developing a defense spill over, exhausting system assets, or exploiting a system bug that results in a scheme that is no longer useful.
