In response to file sharing sites being blocked, hacktivists launched DoS and DDoS attacks against multiple government sites in Asia. One of the attacks was handled by Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) and is described in this report. The attack campaign lasted three days and included at least four attack vectors. One of the vectors was an intense HTTP Flood launched via High Orbit Cannon Laser (HOIC), a powerful tool in the arsenal of Anonymous. This marked one of the first times our ERT ran into an HOIC generated attack ‘in the wild’.
