DDoS Attacks on the Rise After Long Period of Decline

DDoS Attacks on the Rise After Long Period of Decline

The number of DDoS attacks increased by 84% in the first quarter of 2019 compared to Q4 2018, according to new research from Kaspersky Lab.


The global cybersecurity company’s findings, detailed in its DDoS Attacks in Q1 2019 report, come in the wake of dramatically falling numbers of DDoS attacks recorded throughout 2018, suggesting that cyber-criminals are once again turning to DDoS as an attack method after a sustained period of shifting their attention to other sources of income last year, such as cryptomining.
