How memcached reflection threatens IT security

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.
