Nexusguard: DDoS-for-hire websites make a comeback despite FBI crackdown

Posted by Back End News on June 27, 2019

DDoS attacks “for hire” made a comeback at the beginning of the year, with booter-originated attacks rebounding to more than double their amounts in Q4 2018, according to Nexusguard’s “Q1 2019 Threat Report.” Despite the earlier FBI crackdown, the DNS amplification types of DDoS attacks continued to be a favorite of DDoS-for-hire websites, soaring more than 40 times their volume compared to last quarter.

DDoS-for-Hire Services Doubled in Q1

Posted by Dark Reading on June 25, 2019

Nexusguard's analysis also showed a continued trend toward what it calls bit-and-piece DDoS attacks, where threat actors contaminate a large and diverse pool of IP address with almost negligible sizes of junk traffic that converge and block a targeted IP. Such attacks can be hard to mitigate because of the negligible size of the DDoS traffic being routed through each one of the hundreds of IP addresses used in an attack, says Donny Chong, product director of enterprise security solutions at Nexusguard.
