The Mirai botnet struck the security industry in three massive attacks that shook traditional DDoS protection paradigms, proving that the Internet of Things (IoT) is real and the grounds for building powerful and sophisticated cyber-attack tools.
On the morning of October 21st Dyn suffered a denial of service attack that interrupted their Managed DNS network1. As a result, hundreds of thousands of websites became unreachable to most of the world including Amazon’s EC22.
Largescale DDoS attacks have become an everyday occurrence in the gaming industry. Companies are suffering network outages and service degradation causing immediate impact on their brand equity. Case in point: the hacking collective PoodleCorp has committed to launch a DDoS attack in an attempt to ruin the launch of Battlefield 1.
The Dakota Access Pipeline Project (DAPL) is the construction of a 1,172-mile-long pipeline that will span across three states. Domestic production of light sweet crude oil in North Dakota will be transported in the pipeline to a major refining market in Illinois.
Cloud platforms are now being used by hackers in an attempt to launch largescale distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. In addition to DDoS attacks, hackers leverage th
Smartphones. What began as the next generation of mobile phones has morphed into portable computers which combine the capabilities of a personal computer with the features for mobile and handheld use. These devices are powerful enough to perform many of the operations of a PC, and as a result, are now the catalyst for launching cyber-attacks on the go.
Seasoned hackers have typically relied on a variety of sophisticated tools that allow them to orchestrate attacks globally. However, a series of new, off-the-shelf tools are commoditizing the art of hacking, making it possible for novices with little know-how to launch attacks via affordable tools that are available on the Clearnet. These new pay-as-you go solutions include Booters, Stressers, and IP Stressers.
