High volume of botnet and DDOS traffic on the Belgian Internet according to Arbor Networks, we had 6 botnet and DDOS attacks yesterday of which 2 inbound and 4 outbound. This means that the Belgian internet is being used to attack other servers in other countries and that this can pose legal and practical problems. I suppose that many of the supportpeople are taking a holiday but as far as we see it, it will are very dangerous times for the moment on the Belgian Internet and some problems need to be solved earlier. More than 50% of all attack traffic was botnet attacks.
Nobody else will do it for you, so if you don't take the lead and bring them down or just stop the attacks (ingoing or outgoing) nobody else is going to do it for you. Take your responsability. Stop the attacks and tha attackers.
There is still one big Control and Command center on Coltnet (according to shadowsource.org there are still 160 other Control and command centers and Belgium is one of the slowest countries to bring them down) If Coltnet would do the same thing as Versatel and bring that Control and Command center of a botnet down, that would already be a good start.
There are still some other specific attacks
The attacks are very heavy on the Skynet networks, but the other networks are still feeling the impact. This is less than 2 days ago, but more than last week
and the servers that are being used aren't good news either because we see now many more fixed IP adresses instead of dynamic ADSL stations and the Skynet DNS servers are back again. Is there any logical reason for that ?
this is different from the scanning sources that have more such individual sources
and you still should patch your internet explorer because the scanning for vulnerable computers is still going on heavyhanded
