Re: Mult-Vector vs Volumetric
Hi @RyanSepe. Arbor's report shows DNS amplfication attacks dropping a bit in 2014, and NTP attacks rising. SSDP also rose last year.

Mult-Vector vs Volumetric
The reason you will see the most prevalent means of ddos attacks as some type of flooding is because it takes less expertise for the attacker to pull off. Essentially, because its easier is why there are more instances of this. However, because this attack is more easily mitigated you will see enterprises that are attacked using this method restoring their technology services in a fraction of the time it takes for an enterprise to recover from a multi-vector attack.

As stated in the article these attacks are difficult to mitigate. They can attack multiple layers and because of this the time it takes an enterprise to restore functionality increases as well.

DNS based attacks were extremely prevalent in 2013 for their amplification and anonymity factors. I am interested to see how they were represented in 2014.
