Re: No real information
I would like to point out that YOU came to THIS article 2 YEARS after it was posted. In the IT field, it's pretty much Rule-of-Thumb that unless it was posted today it most likely isn't relevant. The fault here isn't as much with the author as it is with you. Yes he provided some AMAZINGLY useless information. I mean seriously he named this article "10 Strategies to fight Anonymous DDoS Attacks" and then rode Anonymous's d*** for the entire thing and gave us no actualy strategy to actually fight these attacks. Considering all of that, I still think your comment was stupid and needless since you completely ignored the date it was published.

Let's hope you put more thought into your work than you do your commenting.

No real information
From what I've seen, the article did absolutely NOTHING on actually providing any worthwhile or relevent information beyond failing horribly at trying to sound helpful.


After reading the comments, this website should fire the author of this article and fill it in with the comments. Going to try a few of them out on myself and see which ones I like best. The commenters were more helpful than this garbage article. I didn't realize we needed to be told how to use common sense.

re: 10 Strategies To Fight Anonymous DDoS Attacks
It's because there is a trick to block the traffic before it reaches you. In fact there are more than just 1 trick.

If you are curious let me know and I'll let you know what it is.

re: 10 Strategies To Fight Anonymous DDoS Attacks
You should also keep a close eye on the security logs for unknown username / password login attempts since they also consume CPU / RAM to manage.. When it comes to Windows servers I personally recommend having a look at Syspeace ( http://www.syspeace.com ) and for Linux fail2ban. Also consider redirecting 404 and 403 errors on webservers to somewhere else, to Google or 127.0.0.1 or something ..

re: 10 Strategies To Fight Anonymous DDoS Attacks
IMO most of this is fluff. If the bandwidth of a targetted DOS attack is larger than the pipe it is unstoppable. Really one of the things you mentioned, being friends with your upstream, and your upstreams pipe being bigger than the DOS attacks capacity is the only thing that will help you.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
