Kagajin Multi-vector attacks have been fueled by the increased availability of attack toolkits with easy-to-use interfaces as well as a growing DDoS-for-hire criminal industry. The highest profile group of hacktivists targeting third-party content providers is the Syrian Electronic Army SEAwhich typically sends emails with a falsified link to a large number of employees in a targeted company or its third-party content provider. Despite dominating four of the five metrics for fixed connectivity, South Korea only led the mobile metrics for average connection speed in the third quarter, with Singapore seeing the highest average peak mobile connection speed and Japan seeing the highest level of mobile broadband adoption. DDoS mitigation for these types of attacks will require the following: Multi-vector attacks have been fueled by the increased availability of attack toolkits with easy-to-use interfaces as well as a growing DDoS-for-hire criminal industry. Malicious actors could have extensive resources to produce DDoS campaigns.

Most of these devices are unmanaged and unpatched, with outdated software interndt firmware — providing fertile ground for exploitation. Multiple phishing attacks targeted Google Enterprise users in order to harvest user credentials and gain access to confidential information.

These record setting DDoS attack campaigns marked an 80 percent increase in average peak bandwidth in Q3 compared to the previous quarter and a four-fold increase from the same period a year ago. In addition, the number of attacks against Web sites and applications reported by Akamai customers remained consistent quarter-over-quarter. Interestingly, we witnessed none of that size in the same quarter a year ago and only six last quarter.

Coordinated security community efforts to discover, manage and mitigate vulnerabilities in these devices and to prevent further expansion of these malicious campaigns. These mega-attacks each used multiple DDoS vectors to deliver large bandwidth-consuming packets at an extremely high rate of speed.

Hardware vendors and software developers will need to address akwmai cleanup, mitigation and management of current and potential vulnerabilities during the lifecycle of these devices. Tom Leighton Rick M. DDoS botnets built from devices other than PCs and servers Malicious actors are shifting their focus to embedded devices, ARM -based devices and Internet-enabled devices beyond the commonly-targeted PCs and servers.

Akamaj again, Internet connectivity was problematic in Syria, with multiple disruptions seen during the third quarter. Four-fold year-over-year increase in DDoS attack size and volume Thriving criminal industry taps into Internet devices, spreads easy-to-use tools.

Doramar The shift to employing DDoS bots from this class of devices is expected to bring more complex attacks, higher bandwidth volume and connection ratios in DDoS campaigns. Interestingly, we witnessed none of that size in the same quarter a year ago and only six last quarter. Attack Highlights Akamai mitigated 17 attacks greater than gigabits-per-second satte Q3with the largest at Gbps. As a belated holiday present for our readers, we will also be launching an updated connectivity visualization on the State of the Internet Web site, a new State of the Internet subspace on the Akamai Communityand an updated mobile application for iOS devices.
