FBI Alert: Unprecedented Ransom DDoS Campaign
Underway is a campaign by cyber criminals using the threat of DDoS attacks for extortion, unprecedented in its scope and scale.
The FBI has warned US companies that thousands of organizations across the world, from various industry sectors, have been threatened with DDoS attacks within six days unless they pay a ransom of anywhere between 10 and 20BTC ($113,000-226,000).
Make a DDoS Protection Plan
The FBI recommends companies use DDoS mitigation services to identify and block such attacks automatically before their networks are affected.
When a DDoS attack strikes, having a DDoS protection plan in place will make the difference between organization-wide panic and an orderly and timely response that keeps business as usual.
A DDoS protection plan will make the difference between panic and business as usual in the event of an attack.
