This Week In The News

Cyber Warfare

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
  • 'ping' (SYN) floods (1:1) - see here for details]
  • 'TCP' reflection (SYN/ACks 4:1) - see for details
  • 'DNS' reflection (small query, large reply)
  • 'NTP' (Network Time Protocol) reflection - UDP 234 byte -> 48kb replay: 1:206 ("get monlist" causes list of last 600 IP addresses which connected to the NTP server to be sent to the 'asking machine')

This latest DDoS technique was fixed in March 2010 - but many time servers not updated/upgraded
