On NTP Reflection DDoS: 1990s Strike Back?

February 18, 2014 Added by:Anton Chuvakin

Sure, I admire the ability of attackers to find all the opportunities for amplification DDoS. DNS – check, NTP – check, SNMP – pending… However, I definitely can not hold the the same admiration for the “defenders” (if they can be called that) who still allow spoofed packets to leave their networks.

January 27, 2014 Added by:Electronic Frontier Foundation

Some people have condemned last week’s court decision to reject the bulk of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Open Internet Order as a threat to Internet innovation and openness. Others hailed it as a victory against dangerous government regulation of the Internet. Paradoxically, there is a lot of truth to both of these claims.
