    CDRDoS Attacks
    Dear All

    I thought I would share with you information regarding what we have seen in the wild as Combination Distributed Reflective Denial of Service attack (CDRDoS) towards Australian Networks.

    CDRDoS is the combination of NTP, DNS, SSDP and CHARGEN reflection amplification traffic targeting concurrently a single host, and we suspect in the future the addition of SNMP will be added to further increase attack capacity.

    If you’re interested in reading more about this type of attack have a read here.

    Kindest Regards

    Fantastic article!

    As a GSP, we've had threats from DERP (or people claiming to be DERP) before. Perhaps now is the time to stop ignoring them!

    Dear Javooooo

    Thanks for your comments, great to hear you find the article useful!

    DERP most certainly is a force which you should not ignore … I’m hoping someone from DERP reaches out to me so I can understand more technical information about the new “super weapon” CDRDoS they have created.

    Kindest Regards

    Good article. Having not dealt with DoS attacks personally this is certainly interesting. The threat of various types of DoS attacks seems to be increasing by the day but looks like security technology behind it seems to be ever increasing too.

    Haven't heard about that 400Gbit attack untill now. That's a huge attack.

    Thanks James
