Cambridge, MA October 23, Q3 also saw an increase in average peak packets per second, recording a 10 percent increase over the previous quarter and a four-fold increase compared the same quarter in More sophisticated, multi-vector attacks became the norm this quarter, with more than half 53 percent of all attacks utilizing multiple attack vectors.
As a belated holiday present for our readers, we will also be launching an updated connectivity visualization on the State of the Internet Web site, a new State of the Internet subspace on the Akamai Communityand an updated mobile application for iOS devices.

At a network provider level, Belgium’s Brutele and Telenet both saw on the order of half of their connections to Akamai come in over IPv6. Four-fold year-over-year increase in DDoS attack size and volume Thriving criminal industry taps into Internet devices, spreads easy-to-use tools Interet Technologies, Inc.

In addition, Greece more than tripled its IPv6 adoption rate from the prior quarter. Coordinated security community efforts to discover, manage and mitigate vulnerabilities in these devices and to prevent further expansion of these malicious campaigns. Highlights of the security edition for Q3 include a four-fold year-over-year increase in DDoS attack size and volume; new attacks targeting hand-held devices and the proliferation of easy-to-use attack tools.
Email Us Email Us??? Although our goal was to publish it in mid-December, unexpectedly busy schedules and holiday time yhe derailed those plans. Most of these devices akaami unmanaged and unpatched, with outdated software and firmware – providing fertile ground for exploitation.
These record setting DDoS attack campaigns marked an 80 percent increase in average peak bandwidth in Q3 compared to the previous quarter and a four-fold increase from the same period a year ago. It will also bring new types of attacks. Malicious actors have found ways to involve a wider base of devices to expand DDoS botnets and produce larger DDoS attacks.

Gambia, Liberia, and Sierra Leone all saw Internet outages that may have been due to issues with submarine cables, while a brief issue in Venezuela was related to a power outage in the country.
Despite dominating four of the five metrics for fixed connectivity, South Korea only led the mobile metrics for average connection speed in the third quarter, with Singapore seeing the highest average peak mobile connection speed and Japan seeing the highest level of mobile broadband adoption. Attackers have also expanded to a new class of device including smartphones and embedded devices, such as customer-premises equipment CPEhome cable modems, mobile devices, and a great variety of Internet-enabled devices including home-based and wearables within the category of the Internet of Things IoT.
SSDP allows attackers to craft malicious requests that result in reflected and amplified traffic directed against designated targets.
Multi-vector attacks have been fueled by the increased availability of attack toolkits with easy-to-use interfaces as well as a growing DDoS-for-hire criminal industry. PLX sert has observed botnet-building efforts in which malicious actors sought to control systems by gaining access through vulnerable web applications on Linux-based machines and have expanded to a new class of device including smartphones and embedded devices, including the Internet of Things IoT.
This new portal serves as the home for content and information intended to provide an informed view into online connectivity and cybersecurity trends as well as related metrics, including Internet connection speeds, broadband adoption, mobile usage, outages, and cyber-attacks and threats.
Multi-vector attacks have been fueled by the increased availability of attack toolkits with easy-to-use interfaces as well as a growing DDoS-for-hire criminal industry. That’s compared to none of that size in the same quarter a year ago and only six last quarter.
Until then, we’ll whet your appetite for insight with some highlights from the upcoming report: Further, with the launch of stateoftheinternet. PLXsert has observed botnet-building efforts in which malicious actors sought to control systems by gaining access through vulnerable web applications on Linux-based machines. DDoS mitigation for these types of attacks will require the following: Compared to Q3 22 percent increase in total DDoS attacks percent increase in average attack bandwidth percent increase in average peak packets per second 44 percent decrease in application layer attacks 43 percent increase in infrastructure layer attacks 5 percent increase in average attack duration 9 percent increase in multi-vector attacks.
Akamai PLXsert’s Q3 State of the Internet Report – The Akamai Blog
Attack Highlights Akamai mitigated 17 attacks greater than gigabits-per-second in Q3with the largest at Gbps. During Q3, another kind of attack also gained momentum – phishing attacks. Attacks with both high bandwidth and high volume were made possible by the use of multi-vector attack methods. Download the full report. State of the Internet also has its own website now, where readers can delve into Akamai’s threat intelligence, threat advisories, data visualizations and more.
Today we’ve launched the first all-security edition of the State of the Internet report. Tom Leighton Pamela J. Corresponding to availability of the Q3 State of the Internet — Security Report, Akamai is also announcing the launch of stateoftheinternet.

AKAMthe leading provider of cloud services for delivering, optimizing and securing online content and business applications, today announced availability of the Q3 State of the Internet — Security Report.
A brute force approach characterized the most significant campaigns in Q3 as attackers shifted towards new attack methods and enhanced older attack methods to consume more bandwidth. Hardware vendors and software developers will need to address the cleanup, mitigation and management of current and potential vulnerabilities during the lifecycle of these devices.
These mega-attacks each used multiple DDoS vectors to deliver large bandwidth-consuming packets and at an extremely high rate of speed. Hesse Tom Killalea Jonathan F. These mega-attacks each used multiple DDoS vectors to deliver large bandwidth-consuming packets at an extremely high rate of speed.
