DDoS attacks at an all-time-high in Q1 2022, says Kaspersky
Kaspersky has released a report showing Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks hit an all-time-high in the first quarter of 2022.
The attacks detected by the security outfit easily surpassed those of the previous quarter and were up 46 per cent on the same time last year. The number of targeted attacks was up by an even higher percentage – 81 per cent compared to the previous quarter.
DDoS attacks, as Reg readers know, are designed to disrupt network resources of businesses and public services. They are particularly nasty when compromised systems are depended upon by the wider population.
