DDoS attacks = Hassle + Grief!
Security firm Kaspersky have been doing some research into DDoS attack businesses. DDoS attack businesses are now at a point where running an attack starts as low as $7 per hour. Whilst these attacks run for $7 per hour the target could be losing thousands if not millions of dollars.
Kaspersky went on to say that according to their calculations, an attack using a cloud based botnet of around 1,000 machines, is likely to cost $7 per hour. These types of services are normally charged out at around $25 per hour, this means that the criminals are making a profit of around $18 per hour.
