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

Commentary:

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.
