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.

11:25 EDTCTXSCisco sale of VCE stake to have limited impact, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo thinks Cisco's (CSCO) decision to sell a portion of its stake in VCE is unlikely to have a material near-to-intermediate-term impact on the company's top line since it will continue to sell its networking and compute solutions to the joint venture. Wells says Cisco's "budding" partnerships with NetApp (NTAP), Microsoft (MSFT) and Citrix (CTXS) should more than offset any potential impacts from lessening ties to EMC (EMC) and VMware (VMW).
