DDoS attacks in Q1 2019

Available at: https://securelist.com/ddos-report-q1-2019/90792/

Key report takeaways:

  1. The US is still the world leader in hosting botnets that are used in DDOS attacks 
  2. China is the primary target for DDOS attackers, with the US in the #2 spot 
  3. SYN flooding is by far the primary technique used for DDOS, though app layer (HTTP) attacks are rising


Kaspersky Lab’s industry analysis highlights that while DDOS attacks are no longer common news items, they are by no means a threat that is on the decline. Any company that has an internet presence needs to consider the risk of a DDOS attack and the impact that it would have to the company’s operations and revenues.
