19:53 EDTWFMRetailers, others question heightened fees at Port of Oakland, WSJ says
After the Port of Oakland said it is considering implementing additional fees, the Retail Industry Leaders Association told the Federal Maritime Commission that it is "troubled" due to the lack of details regarding the fees, according to the Wall Street Journal. The retailer group also questioned the general effectiveness of such a program, and the Agriculture Transportation Coalition echoed the criticism, said the report. Note that executives from Lowe's (LOW), Best Buy (BBY), Target (TGT), Coca-Cola (KO), J.C. Penney (JCP), Tyson Foods (TSN), SunOpta (STKL), and Whole Foods (WFM) serve on the boards of the aforementioned associations. Reference Link

06:50 EDTAKAMAkamai reports Q2 DDoS attack traffic up 7% vs. Q1
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q2 State of the Internet - Security Report. For the past three quarters, there has been a doubling in the number of DDoS attacks year over year. And while attackers favored less powerful but longer duration attacks this quarter, the number of dangerous mega attacks continues to increase. In Q2, there were 12 attacks peaking at more than 100 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, and five attacks peaking at more than 50 Million packets per second, or Mpps. Very few organizations have the capacity to withstand such attacks on their own. The largest DDoS attack of Q2 measured more than 240 gigabits per second, or Gbps, and persisted for more than 13 hours. Peak bandwidth is typically constrained to a one to two hour window. Q2 also saw one of the highest packet rate attacks ever recorded across the Prolexic Routed network, which peaked at 214 Mpps. That attack volume is capable of taking out tier 1 routers, such as those used by Internet service providers, or ISPs. DDoS attack activity set a new record in Q2 , increasing 132% compared to Q2 of 2014 and increasing 7% compared to Q1. Average peak attack bandwidth and volume increased slightly in Q2 compared to Q1, but remained significantly lower than the peak averages observed in Q2 of 2014. SYN and Simple Service Discovery Protocol, or SSDP, were the most common DDoS attack vectors this quarter - each accounting for approximately 16% of DDoS attack traffic. The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, Protocol continues to make them attractive for use as SSDP reflectors. Practically unseen a year ago, SSDP attacks have been one of the top attack vectors for the past three quarters. SYN floods have continued to be one of the most common vectors in all volumetric attacks, dating back to the first edition of the security reports in Q3 of 2011. Online gaming has remained the most targeted industry since Q2 of 2014, consistently being targeted in about 35% of DDoS attacks. China has remained the top source of non-spoofed attack traffic for the past two quarters, and has been among the top three source countries since the very first report was issued in Q3 of 2011.
