Prolexic Issues Mitigation, Detection Rules for Critical DDoS Threat Used in Banking Attacks

(PresseBox) (Hollywood, Florida, ) Who: Prolexic, the global leader in distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection services

What: Prolexic to release a threat advisory on the itosknoproblembro DDoS Toolkit, with specific DDoS mitigation techniques to detect and neutralize it

The itosknoproblembro DDoS Toolkit has been the weapon of choice in many of the headline-making attacks against the US financial services industry. This powerful toolkit leverages a unique, two-tier command mode that can launch multiple high-bandwidth attack types simultaneously. Some of these attacks have peaked at 70 Gbps and more than 30 million pps, a magnitude of traffic that demonstrably overwhelms most network infrastructures. An exclusive threat advisory authored by PLXsert includes analysis of 11 different attack signatures encountered in real-time digital battles, mitigation rules to neutralize those attacks, along with detection rules and a log analysis tool, which can be used to identify and cleanse compromised web servers.

Why: Prolexic Security Engineering and Response Team (PLXsert) will issue the threat advisory on itsoknoproblembro, including detailed information on DDoS protection and mitigation strategies on Thursday, January 3, 2013.

Where: To receive an advance copy of the Threat Advisory under EMBARGO or to schedule a briefing, please contact Michael Donner, SVP & CMO, at +1 (954) 620 6017 or
