Attackers use pulse wave DDoS to pin down multiple targets
New research from Imperva Incapsula details the emergence of a new DDoS assault pattern, which has been named Pulse Wave.

In the most extreme cases, they lasted for days at a time and scaled as high as 350Gbps.”

Do you really know who your friends are?

Do you really know who your friends are?
In the new BBC TV drama ‘Trust Me’ the story focuses on a nurse who steals a friend’s identity to win a job as a doctor. While this is a work of fiction, identity fraud company Equifax is urging people to think about how easy it would be for friends or associates to steal their identity by gathering useful facts from social media. “While the lead character in the drama uses her friend’s CV to get a new job, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch for her to access other personal information via social media sites,” explained Lisa Hardstaff, Identity Fraud Expert at Equifax.
