A major media company was the target of hacktivists that felt the organization was being critical of the Occupy Wall St. movement in the United States. Bent on extracting revenge and embarrassing the company, the hacktivist group sought to halt the company’s Web operations. With this goal in mind, it launched a large-scale Web-based attack using multiple
attack strategies including the Low Orbit Ion Cannon attack tool, SQL Injections, and other attack vectors across approximately 20 of the media company’s digital properties. These attack methods have become common practices for those seeking to take part in a botnet attack, and are often associated with one of the world’s largest, most feared computer hacking groups, Anonymous. Read how the company stopped more than 4 million malicious requests in 24 hours, ensured uptime across 19 global media properties, and prevented attack traffic from reaching the company's origin servers.
