Attack-o-palooza: DDoS Frequency Touches the Sky
The world’s gone digital and apparently, so has its version of ‘breaking windows’. DDoS attacks – the rowdy bit teen gang of the online world – have dramatically ramped up in their intensity across various industries. This recent trend is reminiscent of my son’s liking for his toothpaste-like spinach smoothie – increasing at an alarming rate!
Woah, That’s Some Super(attack)man Scaling
Just like a teenager’s laundry mountain, DDoS strength has grown stupendously. Beginning from a strength of 800 Gbps at the onset of 2023, we now witness peaks shooting up to a mindboggling 1.5+ Tbps. To give you some perspective, that’s like swapping a mere snail race for a full-throttle F1 Grand Prix – quite the digital acceleration there!
