Rise of Dr Dos DDoS Attacks - Infographic

698 views

Published on

Distributed reflection denial of service attacks, or DrDoS attacks, increased significantly in 2013. Uniquely, reflection attacks have two victims – the unwilling third-party server that is compelled to launch DDoS attack traffic and the attackers’ intended DDoS target. For both victims the effect is similar – slow performance or an outage that prevents legitimate users from accessing your site. This infographic from Prolexic explains why DrDoS attacks are on the rise and best practices to stop them.

RiseDrDoS ATTACKS THE OF An emerging DDoS threat Distributed reflection denial of service (DrDoS) attacks increased significantly in Q3 2013 The industries at risk DrDoS attacks explained MALICIOUS ACTOR PRIMARY TARGET DrDoS attacks are being seen in most industries: 256% + TIM VIC Compared to Q3 2012 TIM VIC TIM VIC PACKET1 Spoofed Source (Target) Destination (Victim) PACKET2 Reflected Packet Source (Victim) Destination (Target) • Intermediary victim machines unwittingly participate in an attack against the perpetrator’s target • Requests to the intermediary victims are redirected (reflected) from the secondary victims to the primary target What you can do Why DrDoS usage is increasing 70% + Compared to Q2 2013 • Can obscure attack source (anonymity) • Can hijack bandwidth of intermediary victims to multiply attack size (amplification) • Increase in misconfigured servers worldwide • Easier to obtain lists of misconfigured servers and IP addresses from underground Internet communities LEARN MORE To learn more about DrDoS attacks and read a detailed case study of this emerging threat, download a complimentary copy of Prolexic’s Q3 2013 Quarterly Global DDoS Attack Report from www.prolexic.com/attackreports. +1 (954) 620 6005 www.prolexic.com Turn off the CHARGEN service to stop this attack method Download the latest updates and patches for your servers Download Prolexic’s Q3 2013 Quarterly Global DDoS Attack Report
