Yes, you only need a single laptop with a decent internet connection, rather a massive botnet, to launch overwhelming denial of service (DoS) attacks in order to bring down major Internet servers and modern-day firewalls.
Researchers at TDC Security Operations Center have discovered a new attack technique that lone attackers with limited resources (in this case, a laptop and at least 15Mbps
The OpenSSL Foundation has patched over a dozen vulnerabilities in its cryptographic code library, including a high severity bug that can be exploited for denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
OpenSSL is a widely used open-source cryptographic library that provides encrypted Internet connections using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) for the majority of websites, as well
Cyber attacks are getting evil and worst nightmare for companies day-by-day, and the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is one of the favorite weapon for hackers to temporarily suspend services of a host connected to the Internet.
Until now, nearly every big website had been a victim of this attack, and the most recent one was conducted against the BBC’s websites and Republican
Watching sharks and how they behave is akin to rubbernecking a traffic accident—you just gotta look. But one thing you won’t likely see these beasts eating is subsea telecommunication lines. The International Cable Protection Committee, a group that represents that industry, is putting out the message that sharks are no longer responsible for denial-of-service attacks.
During last year’s Shark Week, a YouTube video of a shark biting a seabed cable gained intense media exposure and more than one million views, the group said.
Small office and home office (SOHO) routers are an increasingly common target for cybercriminals, not because of any vulnerability, but because most routers are loosely managed and often deployed with default administrator credentials.
A new report suggests that hackers are using large botnet of tens of thousands of insecure home and office-based routers to launch Distributed
Security researchers have uncovered a zero-day vulnerability in iOS 8 that could repeatedly crash users’ Apple iPhones, iPads and iPods when the devices connect to a malicious wireless hotspot.
It’s like Denial of Service (DoS) attack on Apple’s iOS devices that results in crashing either individual iOS apps or users’ entire iPhones.
NO iOS ZONE
