Threat report: distributed denial of service

This report discusses the current state of DDoS attacks as of Q4 2018. Progress was made with the FBI cracking down on 15 of the world’s largest DDoS-for-hire websites, causing attack counts to drop around 11% in Q4 2018 versus the same period in 2017, while average and maximum attack sizes went down 85% and 24%, respectively. However, due to the continued exploitation of the “Bit-and-Piece” technique carried over from the previous quarter, the number of attacks and the maximum and average attack sizes increased by 36.08%, 49.15%, and 3.75%, respectively, quarter-on-quarter.

Botnet builders will also continue to find ways to exploit security vulnerabilities of Internet-connected devices. The spread of the source code of Mirai, a malware that turns networked devices running Linux into bots, amply demonstrates this eventuality.
