Lielākais kiber uzbrukums interneta vēsturē

Post no bluebird » 28 Mar 2013, 01:59

Varbūt kāds ir palaidis garām interesantu faktu - ka pavisam nesen noticis lielākais kiber uzbrukums interneta vēsturē:

"A cyberattack originally targeting a single company is now being described by experts as one of the biggest attacks in Internet history. The assault, which recently began impacting elements of the Internet's physical infrastructure, has been dragging down Internet speeds across the world and particularly in Europe"

Protams interesanti, bet vēl interesantāk, kas patiesībā slēpjas aiz šādiem grupējumiem - kāda ir viņu motivācija un mērķi.

Un vai kādam izdosies "nokaut" internetu lielai teritorijai kaut uz pāris stundām?

Kiberbunkurs pie visa vainīgs. :>
In October, 2011, Spamhaus identified CyberBunker as providing hosting for spammers and contacted their upstream provider, A2B, asking that service be cancelled. A2B initially refused, blocking only a single IP address linked to spamming. Spamhaus responded by blacklisting all of A2B address space. A2B capitulated, dropping CyberBunker, but then filed complaints with the Dutch police against Spamhaus for extortion.

In March, 2013, Spamhaus added CyberBunker to its blacklist. Shortly afterwards a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack of previously unreported scale (peaking at 300 gigabits per second; an average large-scale attack might reach 50Gb/s, and the largest previous publicly reported attack was 100Gb/s) was launched against Spamhaus's Domain Name System (DNS) servers exploiting a known vulnerability of DNS; as of 27 March 2013 the attack had lasted for over a week. Steve Linford, chief executive for Spamhaus, said that they had withstood the attack. Other companies, such as Google, had made their resources available to help absorb the traffic. The attack was being investigated by five different national cyber-police-forces around the world. Spamhaus alleged that Cyberbunker, in cooperation with "criminal gangs" from Eastern Europe and Russia, was behind the attack; Cyberbunker did not respond to the BBC's request for comment on the allegation.
