1,000 percent increase in DNS amplification attacks since 2018

The second quarter of 2019 saw a major swelling of DNS amplification attacks reaching a whopping 1,000 percent spike. The report titled “Nexusguard’s Q2 2019 Threat Report” points out that increasing adoption of Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) highlights the massive surge in DNS amplification attacks. The report also highlighted how several government domains and even Paypal.com, became victims of DNS abuses.

To delve deeper into this, CISO MAG had an exclusive interview with Tony Miu, research manager at Nexusguard.
