Distributed cache updating for dynamic source routing dating sites for singles with children
There are other much better ways that State Level attackers could use (think attacks against backbone routers for instance by a nice piece of APT payload).
Thus I would suggest that they are not "attacks" as such, but "black box testing" to enumerate for other much more effective attacks.
Profiling core infrastructure is common practice in espionage and intelligence gathering. Furthermore, the size and scale of these probes -- and especially their persistence -- points to state actors. The data I see suggests China, an assessment shared by the people I spoke with. Nothing, really." - Well there is one thing you can do. You don't pull the plug on the power company that supplies your own home/business. if China or Russia decided to "take down the internet"... The call is coming from inside the house, as it were.
It feels like a nation's military cybercommand trying to calibrate its weaponry in the case of cyberwar. On the other hand, it's possible to disguise the country of origin for these sorts of attacks. Don't put any critical command & control infrastructure (say, for managing power transmission) in a position where it requires the internet to function. With that in mind, a closed, not highly Internet enabled country makes the most sense- like China. • September 13, 2016 PM Let's assume the attack to take down the internet comes from East Asia. Now, if the location of the attack cannot be determined, simply turn off the power to the trans-ocean cables all at once, or the one most highly suspected for example, East Asia. In anycase, let's remember the ultimate defense/retort is to simply pull the plug. And remember we have always been at war with East Asia so let's not freak out by a few alarming action reports. Also, what better way to get additional Federal funding than to get the rumors started that our internet is under attack.
Every quarter, Verisign publishes a DDo S trends report. • September 13, 2016 PM Why don't you tell us what you mean with "some of the major companies that provide the basic infrastructure that makes the Internet work"? Still, you would still be able to reach any server by IP.
While its publication doesn't have the level of detail I heard from the companies I spoke with, the trends are the same: "in Q2 2016, attacks continued to become more frequent, persistent, and complex." There's more. My feeling says it's either * Cloud Flare or similar. I guess I should take the link to Veri Sign as a hint that it's
There are many different ways to launch a DDo S attack.
The more attack vectors you employ simultaneously, the more different defenses the defender has to counter with.
If it goes down, there's a global blackout of all websites and e-mail addresses in the most common top-level domains. wait till you piss off every single large ISP out there! If they're planning to take down the Internet, unplugging them or them being unplugged is the least of anyone's problems because if it is a nation-state, doing something like this would really only make sense to do if it's coordinated with a real world attack. However, since so many services depend on that, people who don't know how to use the internet without DNS, like 99% of its user, would be shut off.Heck even low grade Romanian gypsies stealing cable to sell as scrap have brought down telecommunications infrastructure very well and much more permanently.As for "intangible" information attacks then DDo S attacks are just the current flavour of the month being seen.We don't know who is doing this, but it feels like a large nation state. Like the name says, this is an attack designed to prevent legitimate users from getting to the site.There are subtleties, but basically it means blasting so much data at the site that it's overwhelmed.
