1,000 Percent Increase in DNS Amplification Attacks Since Last Year, Says Nexusguard

Nexusguard researchers attributed Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) with fueling the new wave of DNS amplification attacks. DNSSEC accounted for more than 65% of the attacks last quarter. DNSSEC was designed to protect applications from using forged or manipulated DNS data. Its growing adoption suggests that DNS amplification risks won’t disappear for service providers or enterprise networks anytime soon, according to the Nexusguard quarterly report.
