DNS based DDoS Attacks- What’s in a Name?


You may already know that we have recently partnered with Infoblox.This partnership provides us with an excellent array of network control and security solutions.

InfoBloxControYourNetworkA big focus for Infoblox is their secure DNS solution. DNS attacks are at an all-time high and traditional DNS servers do not offer the protection you need. Recent press has shown a marked increase in DDoS attacks on ISPs around the world. Our ISP customers may be interested in this blog post from Renuka Nadkarni at Infoblox.

Here Renuka explains how ISPs are especially sensitive to DDoS attacks – disruptive to the business and time consuming to mitigate. Her blog goes on to explain the six new attack types and how each one works, covering: Basic NXDomain Attack, Random Sub-domain attacks on Legitimate Domains, Phantom Domain Attacks, Lock-Up Domain Attacks, CPE-driven DDoS attacks in the ISP network and DDoS attacks using Malware-infected CPE devices.

Infoblox are working with ISPs and enterprises to help them protect their DNS infrastructure. Read the full blog post on the Infoblox website here.
