11:30 EDTCLFCliffs Natural turnaround hampered by low iron ore prices, Bloomberg says
Lower iron ore prices are derailing Cliffs Natural's turnaround plans, says Bloomberg. Activist investor Casablanca Capital has been urging Cliffs Natural Resources to spin off or sell foreign mines and return more cash to investors but with iron ore prices at such a low level it may be difficult to sell mines at a satisfactory price or even maintain its current payout, added Bloomberg.

06:51 EDTAKAMAkamai reports DDoS attack traffic up 22% year-over-year
Akamai Technologies released its Q3 State of the Internet Report. A brute force approach characterized the most significant campaigns in Q3 as attackers shifted towards new attack methods and enhanced older attack methods to consume more bandwidth. These record‑setting DDoS attack campaigns marked an 80% increase in average peak bandwidth in Q3 compared to the previous quarter and a four-fold increase from the same period a year ago. Q3 also saw an increase in average peak packets per second, recording a 10% increase over the previous quarter and a four-fold increase compared the same quarter in 2013. Malicious actors have found ways to involve a wider base of devices to expand DDoS botnets and produce larger DDoS attacks. PLXsert has observed botnet-building efforts in which malicious actors sought to control systems by gaining access through vulnerable web applications on Linux-based machines. Attackers have also expanded to a new class of device including smartphones and embedded devices, such as customer-premises equipment, or CPE, home cable modems, mobile devices, and a great variety of Internet-enabled devices including home-based and wearables within the category of the Internet of Things, or IoT. Attacks with both high bandwidth and high volume were made possible by the use of multi-vector attack methods. More sophisticated, multi-vector attacks became the norm this quarter, with more than half of all attacks utilizing multiple attack vectors. This was an 11% increase in multi-vector attacks compared to last quarter, and a nine percent increase compared to 3Q13. Multi-vector attacks have been fueled by the increased availability of attack toolkits with easy-to-use interfaces as well as a growing DDoS-for-hire criminal industry.

12:52 EDTAKAMAkamai retreats after Wells cuts rating on traffic trends
Shares of Akamai (AKAM) are falling after Wells Fargo downgraded the stock to Market Perform from Outperform, saying its research indicates the company's traffic has been moderating in recent weeks. Akamai provides services for the delivery of content over the Internet. WHAT'S NEW: The amount of video and audio streaming being handled by Akamai has slowed during the first two weeks of October when compared with the third quarter, Wells Fargo wrote in a note to investors today. Although Akamai's revenue growth does not correlate directly with changes in the traffic it handles, traffic trends have provided indications about the direction of the company's revenue growth in the past, the firm stated. Additionally, Akamai is facing tough comparisons this quarter, and its international business will be hurt by the strong dollar, the firm contended. Wells predicted the company's 2014 and 2015 earnings would miss expectations and cut its price target range on the name to $57-$61 from $70-$75. OTHERS TO WATCH: Limelight Networks (LLNW) and Level 3 Communications (LVLT) also provide Internet content delivery services. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Akamai fell 3% to $53.
