06:52 EDTAKAMAkamai reports DDoS attack traffic up 57% year-over-year
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q4 State of the Internet – Security Report. "An incredible number of DDoS attacks occurred in the fourth quarter, almost double what we observed in Q4 a year ago," said John Summers, vice president, Cloud Security Business Unit, Akamai. "Denial of service is a common and active threat to a wide range of enterprises. The DDoS attack traffic was not limited to a single industry, such as online entertainment that made headlines in December. Instead, attacks were spread among a wide variety of industries." Akamai also observed a 52% increase in average peak bandwidth of DDoS attacks compared to Q4 a year ago. Large packets of unwanted network traffic can quickly sap an enterprise's ability to respond to legitimate customers, resulting in denial of service outages. Most unprotected sites cannot withstand a typical DDoS attack. As a result, DDoS attacks have become part of the common cybersecurity threatscape that all enterprises with an online presence must anticipate in a risk assessment. Resourceful DDoS-for-hire booter suites took a low-investment approach by tapping into reflection-based DDoS attacks. Nearly 40% of all DDoS attacks used reflection techniques, which rely on Internet protocols that respond with more traffic than they receive and do not require an attacker to gain control over the server or device. Widespread availability of for-hire DDoS services allowed low-level, non-technical attackers to purchase ready-to-use DDoS services. The expansion of the DDoS-for-hire market also promoted the use of multi-vector campaigns, as the competitive market drove attack innovation. Significantly more multi-vector attacks were observed – 88% more than in 4Q13. More than 44% of all attacks used multiple attack vectors.

06:32 EDTYELPBlue Calypso files motion to lift stay in patent infringement cases and appeal
Blue Calypso (BCYP) announced that it has filed a motion in the Eastern District of Texas to lift the negotiated stay on the pending patent infringement litigation between the Company and Groupon (GRPN), Yelp (YELP), Foursquare and IZEA.PK. The Company has also filed notices of appeal at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in each of the Covered Business Method Review cases at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board. On January 14, 2014, the parties agreed to stay the litigation in the Eastern District pending the decisions from the PTAB as to validity of the patents. As a part of agreeing to join the stay, the parties jointly agreed to ask the Court to lift the stay and for an expedited litigation schedule if any of the asserted claims were held valid by the PTAB. The PTAB now has confirmed the validity of twenty-eight claims and Blue Calypso, through its counsel, has asked the Court to lift the stay according to the agreement. The defendants refused to participate in the motion to lift the stay as previously agreed, and have instead asked the Court to leave the stay in place in a separate motion.
