2014 DDoS trends – botnet activity is up by 240 percent

By : |April 1, 2014 0

USA: We are releasing a DDoS Threat Landscape report, which provides several important, and often surprising, facts about DDoS activity in 2013 and the beginning of 2014.

When we started working on this report back in January, our goal was to provide a recap of 2013 DDoS trends. However, the offenders had other plans. And so, just as we were preparing for the report to come out, we started encountering new types of DDoS events which were too significant to overlook.

With this new information in hand, we went back to our drawing boards and started re-sampling almost from scratch. The result is an up-to-date overview of the DDoS threat landscape as it stands today; a report that analyzes many of the prominent DDoS trends while also exploring some less known aspects of DDoS activity.

Some stats:
* More than 25 percent of all Botnets are located in India, China, and Iran.
* USA is ranked number 5 in the list of “Top 10” attacking countries.
* 21 percent of Botnets attack more than 50 targets a month.
* 29.9 percent of DDoS bots can execute Javascript.
* 46 percent of all spoofed user agents are fake Baidu Bots (While 11.7 percent are fake Googlebots).
