Distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are on the rise globally. According to researchers from the University of Twente in the Netherlands, University of California, San Diego and Saarland University in Germany, one-third of all networks active on the internet have experienced a DDoS attack at some point over the last two years, SecurityWeek reported.
The researchers also discovered evidence of nearly 21 million attacks directed at 6.34 million unique IP addresses over the two-year period. This works out to an average of 28,700 distinct DDoS attacks every day.
