DDoS Attack Predictions for 2017

In recent months the world has witnessed the rise of new, significant high-volume distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. With 2016 nearly in the rear-view mirror, at Corero we are preparing for a very busy year ahead. Our threat predictions for 2017 include:

  • Terabit-scale DDoS attacks will become the new norm, impacting ISPs and the Internet backbone itself
  • Novel zero-day reflection and amplification attacks will appear with more frequency, enabling more sophisticated and targeted attacks
  • DDoS attacks will become a top security priority, with increased disruption to businesses and government due to rising threat levels.

The Mirai botnet, which was responsible for a string of attacks in recent months, including the DDoS attack against DNS provider Dyn in October, will continue to evolve as hackers take advantage of the millions of poorly-secured, Internet-connected devices currently in use worldwide. In terms of its size, the Mirai botnet is currently believed to have a population of around 300,000 compromised devices, but its population could increase significantly if hackers amend the source code to include root credentials for other types of vulnerable devices.

Corero predicts that the Mirai botnet will also become more complex in 2017, as hackers evolve and adapt the original package, equipping it with new DDoS attack methods. Mirai is currently believed to contain around ten different DDoS attack techniques or vectors which can be utilized by hackers to initiate an attack. We believe this will increase during 2017 as attackers develop new methods, and then make them open source and available for anyone to use.

While the Mirai botnet is certainly fearsome in terms of its size, its capacity to wreak havoc is also dictated by the various attack vectors it employs. If a variety of new and complex techniques were added to its arsenal next year, we may see a substantial escalation in the already dangerous DDoS landscape, with the potential for frequent, terabit-scale DDoS events that significantly disrupt Internet availability.

The motivations for DDoS attacks are endless, and the range of potential political and economic fallout from such attacks could be far-reaching. Our entire digital economy depends upon access to the Internet, so organizations should think carefully about business continuity in the wake of such events. For example, it may be prudent to have back-up telephone systems in place to communicate with customers, rather than relying solely on VOIP systems, which could also be taken down in the event of an attack.

As an example of the pace of change in the DDoS landscape, the Corero Security Operations Center recently warned of an extremely powerful new zero-day DDoS attack vector which utilizes the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), and has the potential to amplify attacks by as much as 55x.

Certainly the Internet community needs to prepare for potent attack vectors like this to be added to botnets like Mirai. The combination of zero-day DDoS vectors, Mirai delivery mechanisms and attacker ingenuity would seem to indicate that Terabit-scale attacks could occur more frequently next year and internet availability in states, major geographic regions or even countries could be impacted significantly. Individual DDoS attacks, on average, cost large enterprises $444,000 per incident in lost business and IT spending, so the combined economic impact from an entire region being affected would be extremely damaging.[1]

ISPs Must Play a Role in Reducing DDoS Attacks

In the wake of recent IoT-related DDoS attacks many have encouraged manufacturers to install proper security controls on internet-connected devices before they are issued. That s a step in the right direction, but ISPs also have an important role to play in reducing the number of future DDoS attacks.

At a local level, ISPs could significantly reduce the overall volume of DDoS attacks across their networks by employing systems to detect and remediate infected bots that are used to launch DDoS attacks. Furthermore, they can leverage best practices such as ingress filtering to remove the problem of spoofed IP addresses that are widely used in reflection DDoS attacks. This simple improvement to service provider hygiene would be a great initial step towards reducing the overall volume of DDoS traffic. These steps can t protect against the full spectrum of DDoS attacks, but they would speed up the global response to attacks.

ISPs will find themselves at an important crossroads next year. By working together with governments and the international community, ISPs can strengthen the underpinning infrastructure of the Internet and significantly reduce the volume of malicious traffic flowing across their networks.

It is human nature to reflect on the past and wonder about the future. The good news is that the Internet community is paying attention and network operators, in particular, are actively looking for ways to address this issue. From the conversations I have been having, I see good reason to be optimistic and I am hopeful that the number of volumetric DDoS attacks in two or three years time will be significantly reduced through the combined efforts of ISPs, device manufacturers, security vendors and even government entities. As the IT security community rallies together to better protect the integrity of the Internet, we may make tremendous progress in defending against DDoS attacks.

Important LAP-BAND System Safety Information

Indications: The LAP-BAND System is indicated for weight reduction for patients with obesity, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 kg/m 2 or a BMI of at least 30 kg/m 2 with one or more obesity-related comorbid conditions. It is indicated for use only in adult patients who have failed more conservative weight reduction alternatives, such as supervised diet, exercise and behavior modification programs. Patients who elect to have this surgery must make the commitment to accept significant changes in their eating habits for the rest of their lives.

Contraindications: The LAP-BAND System is not recommended for non-adult patients, patients with conditions that may make them poor surgical candidates or increase the risk of poor results (e.g. inflammatory or cardiopulmonary diseases, GI conditions, symptoms or family history of autoimmune disease, cirrhosis), who are unwilling or unable to comply with the required dietary restrictions, who have alcohol or drug addictions, or who currently are or may be pregnant.

Warnings: The LAP-BAND System is a long-term implant. Explant and replacement surgery may be required. Patients who become pregnant or severely ill, or who require more extensive nutrition may require deflation of their bands. Anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin, should be used with caution and may contribute to an increased risk of band erosion.

Adverse Events: Placement of the LAP-BAND System is major surgery and, as with any surgery, death can occur. Possible complications include the risks associated with the medications and methods used during surgery, the risks associated with any surgical procedure, and the patient s ability to tolerate a foreign object implanted in the body. Band slippage, erosion and deflation, reflux, obstruction of the stomach, dilation of the esophagus, infection, or nausea and vomiting may occur. Reoperation may be required. Rapid weight loss may result in complications that may require additional surgery. Deflation of the band may alleviate excessively rapid weight loss or esophageal dilation.

Mobile Device Clients Security Best Practices and Privacy Information

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

Mobile devices present interesting security challenges in your enterprise environment. For example, mobile devices by their nature are more easily lost or stolen, which could provide attackers with access to e-mail and other network content if the device is not protected with a strong password. Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 allows you to better manage your mobile devices by enforcing configurations that enhance security such as passwords and certificates.

Best Practices

Use native mode whenever possible Native mode uses certificates issued by a PKI to provide mutual authentication between site systems and mobile device clients. Native mode is designed to be the most secure mode for Configuration Manager 2007. If you do not enable native mode, you must configure the distribution points that support mobile device clients to allow anonymous access.

Require mobile device clients to use passwords Password management on Windows Mobile for Pocket PC 5.0, Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition 5.0 and Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone requires the Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP). For more information, see the Windows Mobile Messaging and Security Feature Pack web page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=80392 ).

Afterswitching to a custom Web site, remove the default virtual directories When you change from using the default Web site to using a custom Web site, Configuration Manager 2007 does not automatically remove the old virtual directories. You should manually remove the virtual directories created under the default Web site. This is especially important if you configured the distribution point to Allow clients to connect anonymously (Required for mobile device clients) while using the default Web site, and then disable anonymous connections after switching to the custom Web site because the old virtual directories will still be configured for anonymous access. For the list of virtual directories created on BITS-enabled distribution points, see About BITS-Enabled Distribution Points .

Privacy Information

Device management allows you to perform hardware inventory, software inventory, file collection, and software distribution on mobile device clients running an embedded version of Windows CE, including Windows Mobile. The privacy concerns that apply to client computers for inventory and software distribution also apply to mobile device clients. Software inventory and file collection are not enabled by default. You can configure what software inventory you want to collect and whether you want to collect files. Hardware inventory and software distribution are enabled by default. Before configuring mobile device management, consider your privacy requirements.

HIMSS Analytics unveils 2018 EMR Adoption Model criteria

HIMSS Analytics established a new set of criteria for its EMR Adoption Model, set to take effect Jan. 18, 2018.

The eight-stage EMR Adoption Model measures the degree to which a hospital or health system utilizes its EMR functions. The last time HIMSS Analytics updated its EMR Adoption Model criteria was in 2014, HIMSS Analytics Global Vice President John Daniels told Becker’s Hospital Review in an interview.

The new model contains a major focus on cybersecurity, with privacy and security standards integrated into Stage 2 through Stage 7. To meet Stage 2 criteria, organizations must now establish policies regarding device encryption, mobile security and antivirus software, among other standards.

Another update involves moving digital imaging criteria into Stage 1, since “pretty much every organization has a digital [picture archiving and communication system] capability for radiology and cardiology,” says Mr. Daniels. In the current EMR Adoption Model, digital imaging for radiology is a requirement to reach Stage 5 and digital imaging for cardiology is a requirement to reach Stage 7.

In 2018, HIMSS Analytics will also ask hospitals and health systems vying for Stage 7 designation about two more benchmarks: anesthesia information systems and smart infusion pumps. However, healthcare organizations will not be scored on these two additions.

“We’re looking at these capabilities, but we’re not scoring them,” Mr. Daniels says. “We’re letting the industry know, at some point in the future, these will become Stage 7 requirements. We want to make sure we give the industry plenty of time to begin to plan for and implement these capabilities.”
