DDoS Attacks on the Rise

DDoS Attacks on the Rise Security group Akamai's report for Q2 2015 indicated an increase in Distributed Denial of Services noting that online gaming sites are being targeted.

Based on prior years, DDoS activity has significantly increased with a large portion of the attacks targeted at online gaming operators.

John Summers, vice president, Cloud Security Business Unit at Akamai, said: “The threat posed by distributed denial of service (DDoS) and web application attacks continues to grow each quarter. Malicious actors are continually changing the game by switching tactics, seeking out new vulnerabilities and even bringing back old techniques that were considered outdated."
  • Obviously the online gambling operators have to be aware of that and give all the possible measures which could guaranteed their security and the security of their customers. The worst thing is that there is so huge increase in the number of these attacks and anyone could be feeling safe.
  • WoW!!! someone always trying to mess things up. There is always going to be smarter people born everyday. What exactly are they doing ?? stealing money or just messing up the site where us the players would get a virus or spam on our computer. cause I totally trust some sites maybe I should not. although I do have a good protection on my computer that I pay for yearly... just makes me mad.
  • I know that better security is the only answer, but I it is still obviously not enough. Everyone is harmed by this kind of attack. Just reading an article about these events will keep new players away from online gambling and make existing customers pull the plug on their favorite operators and sites. We all need to keep informed of what's going on at our favorite sites and do what ever is necessary to keep all of us safe. If we don't know what to do, we need to ask before we decide to just stop going online.
  • Exactly, those DDOS Attacks are rising like mushrooms! our internet provider is attacked yesterday (wednesday) and day before yesterday (tuesday) both at 21:00CET with big Ddos attacks, around 3,2 million people didn't had wi-fi or internet access for hours. it's easy for those guys to attack with ddos, they make damage and lot of angry people.
  • That is actually scary.. The only thing casinos can do it to change and upgrade the security level because in a way I feel like if the casinos are attacked, my privacy and details are not secure too.. Hackers have always been and probably they always will be, so the casinos can only do the best to improve security systems so that the threat would as small as possible.
