This white paper explains what makes spam such an unbearable problem and how spamming tactics are evolving daily to beat anti-spam software. The latest tactic is to use the common PDF file format to send image spam. By using PDF attachments to send images instead of embedding them in the body of the email message, spammers have taken the cat-and-mouse game with anti-spam software developers to a new level.

Spam generates an enormous amount of traffic that is both time-consuming to handle and resource intensive. Apart from that, a large number of organizations have been victims of NDR spam that has an effect similar to a Distributed Denial of Service on the email system. In this paper we provide a technical explanation of NDR Spam and recommend solutions that can prevent or limit exposure to this kind of unsolicited email.

Financial services companies have been the target of a serious, sustained, and well-funded DDoS campaign for more than a year. What these attacks have continued to demonstrate is that DDoS will continue to be a popular and increasingly complex attack vector. DDoS is no longer simply a network issue, but is increasingly a feature or additional aspect of other advanced targeted attacks. The motivation of modern attackers can be singular, but the threat landscape continues to become more complex and mixes various threats to increase the likelihood of success. There have certainly been cases where the MSSP was successful at mitigating against an attack but the target Website still went down due to corruption of the underlying application and data. In order to defend networks today, enterprises need to deploy DDoS security in multiple layers, from the perimeter of their network to the provider cloud, and ensure that on-premise equipment can work in harmony with provider networks for effective and robust attack mitigation

In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.

Today’s hosting provider can increase revenue by capitalizing on the growing demand of business customers for hosted online operations—provided, of course, that it can safeguard these critical operations against DDoS-related outages. Using the simple, step-by-step approach described in this paper, providers can model the financial impact of a DDoS attack on their operations and calculate the ROI of an effective DDoS defense solution.

Die Erhöhung von DDoS-Angriffen kurbelt die Nachfrage an umfassenden Lösungen an “This market engineering study comes at a time when DDoS attacks are accelerating in purpose, sophistication, complexity, scale, and frequency. Businesses of all size have proven to be susceptible to these attacks, and though DDoS is not a new concern, the risk of DDoS attack probability and potential for damages is at an all-time high. As a result, DDoS mitigation is a top-of-mind consideration for IT and security organizations around the world, and demand for DDoS mitigation solutions is growing rapidly.”

2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

The modern enterprise is dependent upon connectivity at every level. Every business initiative, whether driven by sales, marketing, manufacturing, finance, R&D or HR, is dependent upon reliable network availability and continuity. Disrupting that continuity is what Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are all about.

DDoS attack size doubled in early 2018 after attackers discovered and employed a new, massive DDoS reflection and amplification method with the potential to multiply their attack resources by a factor of 500K. The attack vector, called memcached UDP reflection, uses resources freely exposed on the internet — no malware or botnet required.

Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.

In this white paper, we’ll look at Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, why they pose a threat to healthcare and other networks, and how to protect against them. As we are expected to host more and more key information on our network, we increase our risk at risk for an attack that can shut down vital services or serve to support a malicious actor out to steal private data.
