DDoS, Web Attacks Surge; Repeat Attacks Become the Norm New Cloud Security Stats, Trends Shared in the Q4 2015 State of the Internet – Security Report Bangalore, Karnataka, India (Business Wire India) March 1, 2016 Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the global leader in content delivery network (CDN) services, today announced the availability of the Q4 2015 State of the Internet ? Security Report. The quarterly report provides analysis and insight into malicious activity observed across the Akamai Intelligent Platform? and provides a detailed view of the global cloud security threat landscape. It can be downloaded at www.stateoftheinternet.com/security-report. ?The threat from DDoS and web application attacks isn?t going away. Each quarter, the number of attacks against Akamai customers continues to surge. This quarter, the number of web application attacks jumped 28% while DDoS attacks increased 40% compared with Q3,? said Stuart Scholly, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Security Business Unit, Akamai. ?And malicious actors aren?t backing down. They?re hammering away at the same targets over and over again, looking for a moment when defenses may be down.? During Q4, repeat DDoS attacks were the norm, with an average of 24 attacks per targeted customer in Q4. Three targets were subject to more than 100 attacks each and one customer suffered 188 attacks ? an average of more than two per day. DDoS Attack Activity at a Glance During Q4, Akamai mitigated more than 3,600 DDoS attacks across the routed solution, more than twice the number of attacks seen a year ago. The vast majority of these attacks were based on stresser/booter-based botnets. These DDoS-for-hire attacks rely heavily upon reflection techniques to fuel their traffic and aren?t as capable of generating large attacks. As a result, we saw fewer of the mega-attacks than we did a year ago. Also, stresser/booter sites typically have time limits on their use, which contributed to a decrease in the average attack duration to just less than 15 hours.
