DDoS mitigation leader advises CSPs to use deep learning-based attack detection
SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 5 October 2021 – A new cyber threat, coined a “Black Storm” attack, could potentially wreak havoc on communications service provider (CSP) networks, according to new distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) research from Nexusguard: A New Threat to CSP Networks – The Impending “Black Storm.” While DDoS amplification attacks rely on DNS servers or other similar open services to interrupt connectivity, a Black Storm attack can leverage any device connected to the Internet. Researchers caution that the volume from one Black Storm attack could terminate medium to large-sized enterprises in a clean sweep and severely cripple a large-scale CSP network.
