A new report released today shows that distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have increased dramatically in the first two quarters of 2018 compared to 2017. The increase in attacks is being attributed to large scale botnets being created by attackers using insecure IoT devices.
According to a report released by DDoS mitigation company NexusGuard, denial-of-service attacks have increased by 29% since Q2 2017, with the average attack size increased by 543% to 26.37 Gbps.
