DDoS Attacks are 100 Times Worse Compared to Last Year

DDoS ArtAccording to a recent Kaspersky report, DDoS attacks have gotten much worse over the last 12 months.

According to the report:

The average duration of a DDoS attack in Q2 was about 3000 minutes (roughly 50 hours or about 2 days). Compare this with the average of 30 minutes for Q2 2021: the figure has grown hundredfold.

And apparently things will get worse still.  “On a global scale, there is a high probability that DDoS activity will intensify,” the report states.

Keep in mind that 95% of attacks are “very short attacks” so the average is drawn upward by exceptional attacks.  The report is full of interesting statistics about types of attack, geographic information, and long-term trends.
