The rise of artificial intelligence DDoS attacks

The rise of artificial intelligence DDoS attacks (Trends, Reports, Analysis)

Security professionals must examine the classical defense mechanisms in place to determine if they can withstand an attack based on artificial intelligence. L7Defense is a pioneer in the ability to defend from attacks in real-time using unsupervised machine learning. The automatic spreading of malware represented the major route for automation and marked the first phase of fully automated DDoS attacks. If a DNS server can amplify requests to a factor of 200 a bad actor with bandwidth of 100Mbps using both amplification and reflection techniques can generate an attack of 200Gbps. Application attacks are heaven for bad actors. Supervised learning can help to a certain extent but in a world that is full of dynamic variables, you really need a system that can adapt to these changes and predict the unknown future that AI-based attacks will bring.
