In this final preview before the report's release, we look at the most-used attack vectors for the quarter.
- We saw a record number of DDoS attacks recorded on the Prolexic network - more than double what was reported in Q1 2014.
- The profile of typical attacks changed.
- Last year, high bandwidth, short-duration attacks were the norm. This time, the typical DDoS attack was less than 10 Gbps and lasted for more than 24 hours.
- SSDP attacks -- absent in Q1 2014 -- came on strongly in Q1 2015.
- The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Protocol has made them attractive attack targets.
