All Rights Reserved 33 Section 1: Akamai maintains a distributed set of agents deployed across the Internet that monitor attack traffic. Based on data collected by these agents, Akamai is able to identify the top countries from which attack traffic originates, as well as the top ports targeted by these attacks.
Note that the originating country as identified by the source IP address is not attribution — for example, a criminal in Russia may be launching attacks from compromised systems in China. This section provides insight into port-level attack traffic, as observed and measured by Akamai, during the first quarter of As shown in Figure 3 United States 8. This decline is likely related to Indonesia making 6 India 2.
Attack traffic concen- tration also increased in the first quarter, again owing to the 1. As shown in Figure 2, the concentration of attack traffic among The makeup of the top 10 list remained largely consistent the top 10 targeted ports increased significantly during the first with the previous quarter, with Italy and Hungary dropping off, quarter of , driven primarily by significant increases in attack and Indonesia and Hong Kong joining. Despite these increases, Port Microsoft-DS remained the quarter of , likely due to the massive increase seen in most targeted port, though the percentage of attacks targeting it Indonesia.

Data from the Internet Storm Center1 shows a large spike in attacks targeting this port late in the quarter; unfortunately, however, there is no information provided on the source of the attacks.

However it is unknown if this was truly geted Port 23 Telnet — in previous quarters, this was the case the case, or if the forces behind the QCF were merely pausing to in Taiwan as well; however, in the first quarter, Port was regroup for future attacks.

Due to the nature of the Akamai platform, it can be difficult to distinguish the High Tech difference between a spike in the traffic a site might encounter 15 due to a specific event such as being mentioned on a popular live television program and a malicious attack such as a DDoS, Enterprise without extensive review by an analyst.
Therefore, Akamai relies 72 on customers to report DDoS attacks, which is what this analysis is based upon. At the same time, high tech and public was in It is formed in the first quarter, comprised of probes, rather than full-on interesting to note that the attacks in the first quarter were more DDoS attacks.
