DDoS attacks reach new level of edification
Prolexic Technology cautioned of an growing risk from uncommonly huge and highly innovative DDoS strikes.
The DDoS strikes have been released in the last week using the so-called itsoknoproblembro DDoS device set. The harmful actor(s) behind the strikes have used this effective device together with innovative strike techniques that clearly illustrate knowledge of typical DDoS minimization techniques.
The strike signatures are extremely complicated and Prolexic has documented continual flooding peaking at 70 Gbps and more than 30 million pps against some of its customers. Most minimization suppliers would battle to fight DDoS strikes with these features.
The itsoknoproblembro device set contains several facilities and application-layer strike vectors, such as SYN flooding, that can at the same time strike several location slots and focuses on, as well as ICMP, UDP and SSL encoded strike types. A typical attribute of the strikes is a huge UDP overflow focusing on DNS infrastructures.
Uniquely, the fighting botnet contains many genuine (non-spoofed) IP details, allowing the strike to avoid most anti-spoofing systems.
