Q2 2015 Global DDoS Threat Landscape: Assaults Resemble Advanced Persistent Threats

Posted By erikemanuelli on Technology - Distributed denial of service (DDoS) assaults continue to be a nuisance for online businesses and their customers.
Worse, the downtime caused by attacks is costly for organizations and frustrating for consumers. With no signs of abating, understanding the methods and capabilities of perpetrators is essential to maintaining good defenses.

In Incapsula's Q2 2015 DDoS Global Threat Landscape Report they share unique research data, collected in the course of mitigating thousands of DDoS assaults against Imperva Incapsula-protected domains and network infrastructures.
What DDoS has attacked your site this quarter?



That is how the hackers using bots were hitting my site. Every weekend from Friday night through Sunday night. If you see "Database Connection Errors" on a site that is a likely cause.

Contacted my host, and it seems that the attack affected sites hosted in the same server (I use managed shared hosting, and the company is very reliable.)
