DDoS attacks fell by 73% in Q3 of 2020, says Kaspersky

  • The analysis of commands received from command and control servers also demonstrates this decline, said a DDoS Protection report from Kaspersky, adding that despite the overall stabilization of the DDoS market during the year, the quarter still saw a year-on-year rise, and the year’s highest number of attacks in a single day, totalling 323.
  • In Q3 2020, the company said that it detected 73 per cent fewer attacks than in the previous quarter. However, compared to the same period in 2019, this figure has seen a one-and-a-half times year-on-year increase.
  • This means that the decline observed during Q3 can mostly be explained by the abnormal rise of attacks in the second quarter.
