DDoS Attack Size Increasing
Arbor Networks said the DDoS attacks that its appliances are addressing have increased in size. Attacks over 20 Gbps increased 350 percent, the firm said. In addition the duration of attacks has decreased by 85 percent, lasting less than 1 hour, the firm said. "Mitigating the attack is no longer an option and businesses find themselves in disaster recovery mode," Arbor said.
