Akamai: DDoS attacks up thanks to criminal misuse of stress-test services

Tim Greene | Dec. 9, 2015
The upside is that the duration of attacks is shorter.

The report makes a number of predictions:

  • Expect more records set for DDoS attacks, with varying attack methods.
  • Because of the huge number of users and vulnerable devices located in the U.S., it will remain the top source of malicious traffic.
  • Attacks against gaming will continue as players look for competitive edges and as platforms remain vulnerable.
  • Retailers will suffer the vast majority of Web apps attacks because successful exploits prove so lucrative.
