Large attacks are growing as multi-vector exploits increasingly become the norm. In this report, Neustar, Inc. highlights new areas of growth in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks over the past year.
The report affirms that DDoS attacks continue to be an effective means to distract and confuse security teams while inflicting serious damage to brands and reveals that while volumetric attacks over 50Gbps remain a relatively small segment of the overall threat picture at only 12% of attacks, their frequency has grown enormously when compared to the same period in 2018. The latest attacks morph over the course of the attack using a variety of ports and protocols to locate and exploit vulnerabilities. In Q1, 2019 alone, over 77% of attacks used two or more vectors.
