wiredmikey writes "The Sixth Annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, released today by Arbor Networks, revealed that DDoS attack size broke 100 Gbps for first time; up 1000% since 2005. In addition to hitting the 100 Gbps attack barrier for the first time, application layer attacks hit an all-time high. Additionally, it goes on to show that as new equipment, protocols and services are introduced into networks, the vulnerable attack surface for DDoS is expanded. DDoS attacks are likely to continue as a low cost, high-profile form of cyber-protest in 2011 and beyond."
