DDoS Myths in 2020

  • The nature of DDoS attacks is shifting, and while some organizations might believe that DDoS is a thing of the past, this is not the case.
  • Attackers are moving away from simple volumetric floods, and focusing on more sophisticated, harder to mitigate application-layer (L7) DDos attacks.
  • The past few months have seen two significant DDoS ransom campaigns: first against banks in South Africa in October 2019, and more recently a targeted campaign against Australian banks and financial institutions.
