DDoSWarriors is an in-depth resource that provides comprehensive analysis on denial-of-service (DoS) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack tools, trends and threats for current DDoS attacks happening today. This site was created to bolster current resources for network security professionals, and educate them with invaluable information on recent DDoS attacks. The site also provides an unprecedented level of technical detail across all of its reports on recent DDoS attacks reports and resources on current DDoS attacks.
A distributed denial of service attack or better known as a DDoS attack is one in which two or more persons, bots or other compromised systems attack a single target—causing the system to slow down or shut down, thereby denying its users the ability to use it. During
DDoS attacks, an online service can be brought down by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources.

DDoS Warriors is an in-depth resource that provides comprehensive analysis on denial-of-service (DoS) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack tools, trends and threats. This site was created to bolster current resources for network security professionals, and educate them with invaluable information on various recent DDoS attacks. The site also provides an unprecedented level of technical detail across all of its DDoS attack reports and resources.
Driven by content developed by Radware's security experts including the Emergency Response Team (ERT), the site provides first-hand accounts and analysis that will guide proactive implementation of DDoS prevention techniques and solutions. The ERT has extensive DDoS attack experience by successfully dealing with some of the industry's most notable hacking episodes 'in the wild' as they occur and has deep experience aiding customers in mitigating new DDoS threats on a daily basis.
Our goal with DDoS Warriors is to create a 'go-to' resource for security professionals who want to stay up to date on recent DDoS attacks and dig deeper into network threats beyond surface-level analysis, as well as identify available safeguards. A high level overview of
DDoS attacks won't do the job. In order to protect an organization's application infrastructure, today's security professional needs access to in-depth, technical analysis of current DDoS attacks and threats.
The Internet of things is fraught with connected devices offering a staggeringly low level of security. Depending on which source is consulted, the number of IoT devices could reach as many as 20 billion by 2020.
Agile development practices are a double-edged sword. DevOps & agile software development practices is creating dynamic IT infrastructures that require adaptive security solutions to safeguard them.
PenTeleData deployed AMS to replace a legacy DDoS mitigation tool and to offer its own customers a DDoS solution. Founded in 1994, PenTeleData is a strategic partnership of cable and telephone companies.
The web application threat landscape is in a constant state of flux. From DevOps to new attack vectors, changes can leave security professionals scrambling to safeguard their digital assets.
It’s looking that way. Twenty percent of organizations are already trying it and another 28% plan to do so.
A Smurf Attack (named so as it fits the stereotype of Smurfs with proper visualization) is a denial-of-service (DoS) attack that involves sending ICMP echo requests (ping) traffic to the broadcast address of routers and other network devices in large computer networks with a spoofed source address (the address of the desired DoS target). Since the device receiving the original ICMP echo request broadcasts it to every other device it’s connected to, each one of these devices sends out an echo reply to the spoofed source address (the DoS target). This will generate a high rate of ICMP traffic and could cause DoS or instability for the target network.
If the original request (to a device in a large network) is broadcast to such a vast number of machines, the resulting attack can be highly effective. After 1999, however, most routers do not forward packets sent to their broadcast addresses by default, this makes the likelihood of a successful large-scale Smurf Attack fairly low.
