March’s huge DDoS attack on Spamhaus that left service providers struggling to contain a 300Gb/s DNS reflection surge was made possible by the industry's tardiness in implementing IETF recommendations on limiting forged traffic made more than a decade ago, EU security agency ENISA has argued.
"Prevention is key to effectively countering cyber-attacks. We therefore welcome the EU's Cyber Security Strategy, which is proposing a strengthened role for ENISA, with adequate resources, to help protect Europe's digital society and economy."
