ISP fail in Spamhaus DDoS puts ‘open DNS resolvers’ on EU regulator agenda

Liam Tung | April 15, 2013
The cyber-attacks on an anti-spam group that rattled Europe's internet last month could have been countered by ISPs, according to the EU's security agency, which is taking new mitigation recommendations to operators and telecoms regulators.

"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," he added.

ENISA is aiming to provide policy makers, telecoms regulators, cyber security agencies and network operators with recommendations on how to address issues related to the resilience of Europe's internet infrastructure, it notes.
