12:57 EDTNFLX, LVLT, MSFT, AAPL, LLNW, AKAMAkamai down after report says Apple building CDN
Akamai (AKAM) shares are trading lower after a report by StreamingMedia said Apple (AAPL) may be building its own content delivery network, or CDN. WHAT’S NEW: StreamingMediaBlog.com said Apple has been hiring employees for a group tasked with building a new CDN for external use. The report says Apple has traditionally relied on CDN providers like Akamai and Level 3 Communications (LVLT), but performance issues with its iCloud product have partly motivated the construction of an independent CDN. The report also notes that Microsoft (MSFT) and Netflix (NFLX), which both took their CDNs in-house, still use Akamai, Level 3 and Limelight Networks (LLNW) for much of their content delivery needs. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, analysts at Wells Fargo said the risk to Akamai’s overall revenue from an independent Apple CDN is likely “fairly minimal.” The firm, which maintains an Outperform rating on the stock, said there are too many unknowns regarding Apple’s long-term CDN strategy and that Akamai would be unlikely to see any impacts to its revenue until 2015. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Akamai opened the session higher but fell sharply following the report. Shares are down more than 3% in early afternoon trade amid a broad market sell-off. OTHERS TO WATCH: Shares of Akamai peer Level 3 Communications are down about 2.2% in early afternoon trade, with shares of lightly-traded Limelight Networks down 0.2%.

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.
