French anti-terror demonstrations - comments from Arbor Networks

January 2015 by Arbor Networks

Kirk Soluk, ASERT research analyst at Arbor Networks, examines DDoS activity leading into the French anti-terror demonstrations in his latest blog post. This blog post also examines further attack activity after demonstrations died down.

Comparisons of DDoS attack data over the eight-day periods before and after January 11th show:

* a 26% increase in the number of attacks,

* a 35% increase in the average attack size,

* a 100% increase in the number of attacks larger than 5 Gbps and

* a 54% increase between the peak attack events in the two time periods

This is yet another striking example of significant online attacks paralleling real-world geopolitical events.

Do let me know if you would like to speak to Kirk or another member of the ASERT
