DDoS Attacks Shift To Europe, Asia
There were 768 DDoS attacks reported in 2012. In the first half of 2013, Akamai said it received 516 attack reports. While the U.S. holds nearly two-thirds of all attacks, Akamai said the second quarter brought an increase in DDoS attacks targeting businesses in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific region. Increased attacks in Asia were primarily driven by a continuing series of attacks on a small number of companies within the region, Akamai said.
