DDoS attacks increased by 30%
Hackers are increasing their attack power
According to DDoS-GUARD research, a 30% attacks growth was registered in the 3rd quarter of the current year as compared to the previous period. On the average, the filtration system faced 130 attacks daily, i.e., 5 attacks every hour. Moreover, the number of massive DDoS attacks (over 100 Gbps) significantly increased by 29%. 7 super-strong attacks (over 200 Gbps) were registered.
DDoS-Guard experts notice that attacks become more sophisticated and powerful, because the attackers use dedicated servers in order to conduct an attack. On the other hand, a dedicated server is not able to provide an uninterrupted traffic flow onto the attacked resource for long. This fact decreases average attack duration. In Q3 2015 the most extreme attack exceeded 220 Gbps, but lasted only 15 minutes. As compared to the 2nd quarter, average attack duration decreased by 16%, however its average power increased by 8%.
Based on the statistic information DDoS-Guard predicts the following: the attack power will grow, while its duration will decrease. A peak of DDoS attacks is likely to happen on Christmas holidays. BitTorrent trackers and hosting providers are in a high-risk area.
DDoS-Guard is a large provider of protection against DDoS attacks. Based on its own developed infrastructure and own geographically distributed network DDoS-Guard has 1.5TB of available network capacity to absorb and filter any type of attack.
