http://www.prolexic.com | Distributed Reflection Denial of Service (DrDoS) attacks, a type of DDoS attack, have grown increasingly popular. Some DrDoS attacks target IP-based devices such as printers and routers to take advantage of vulnerabilities inherent in these standard network protocols. By taking advantage of the functionality of the SNMP, NTP and CHARGEN protocols, attackers can turn mild-mannered network devices into malicious attacking bots. This document from Prolexic highlights the problem as well as steps you can take to protect yourself.
