    Three out of every four distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks employed blended, multi-vector approaches in the second quarter of 2017, tapping the internet of things (IoT) and ramping up the volume.

    That’s according to Nexusguard’s Q2 2017 Threat Report, which measured more than 8,300 attacks. It found that 23.68% of attacks targeted a single vector, while the rest (76.32%) were blended, multi-vector attacks.

    The analysis also showed that hackers continued to rely on volumetric attacks to overwhelm system resources.
