Nexusguard research reveals 500% increase in average DDoS attack size caused by botnets, malware

Due to the increase in IoT-related malware exploits and the rampant growth of large-scale DDoS attacks, research conclusions point to the continued use of IoT botnets. Cyber attacks hit the 2018 FIFA World Cup as well as cryptocurrency-related businesses, maximizing revenue loss. For example, attacks on the Verge Network (XVG) caused a loss of 35 million XVG tokens, valued at more than $1.7 million. Nexusguard analysts warn that CSPs and susceptible operations should enhance their preparedness to maintain their bandwidth, especially if their infrastructures don’t have full redundancy and failover plans in place.
