DNS attacks saw huge rise in 2019

DNS amplification attacks have grown 4,788 per cent in the third quarter of 2018, a new Nexusguard Threat Report says. The report claims that Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) are still the main growth drivers for the attacks, but adds that there has been a “sharp rise” in TCP SYN Flood attacks. Although not exactly a novelty, these attacks have risen in popularity as hackers learned how to make them more sophisticated and harder to tackle.
