How to Improve Website Resilience for DDoS Attacks – Part I

Denial of Service (Dos) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are unforgiving.

Study: Attack on KrebsOnSecurity Cost IoT Device Owners $323K

A monster distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) against KrebsOnSecurity.com in 2016 knocked this site offline for nearly four days. The attack was executed through a network of hacked “Internet of Things" (IoT) devices such as Internet routers, security cameras and digital video recorders.
