How memcached reflection threatens IT security

Link11

2018 is the year of high volume DDoS attacks. Since the emergence of the new attack vector memcached reflection in February, new bandwidth records have been set. Companies worldwide suddenly found themselves exposed to a new DDoS risk. In a webinar, the Link11 IT security experts Karsten Desler and Aatish Pattni explain how to assess the threats. Today's global IT infrastructures face a DDoS threat that has never existed before with such massive bandwidths. This issue relates to attack vectors, which can hit companies with a really destructive attack volume due to enormous amplification factors. The largest possible 'amplification reflection vector' to date has been detected in memcached reflection attacks. Cyber criminals can theoretically use the vector to increase their attacks by a factor of 50,000.

Well-organized cybercriminals operate in powerful networks that allow them to attack thousands of online businesses using an efficient and scalable model. Hackers steal millions of credit cards and identity data to be sold to fraud rings. Using proxies and VPN, the fraud rings launch global fraud attacks from anywhere in the world. By contrast, banks and online businesses often operate in silos, independent of intelligence gathered from attacks on other business, and challenged by the need to balance fraud detection with reduced friction for legitimate customers.

3 Flaws with the Defense-in-Depth Security Model and How to Improve It

Infocyte

Reports of network intrusions have spiked in recent years resulting in millions in financial loses, theft of intellectual property, and exposure of customer information. The groups responsible for these attacks are organized and can persist in your organization’s systems and endpoints without detection for 6 months on average – sometimes years. The approach many organizations take to prevent these attacks is to simply layer on increasing numbers of defensive solutions – clearly a better approach is needed.
