It has been reported that businesses in Guernsey are being warned about a group of cyber criminals targeting the island’s firms. During the last 12-18 months the organisation calling itself DD4BC has been targeting various companies – ranging from online casinos to banks – with ‘distributed denial of service’ attacks (DDoS). Igal Zeifman, Senior Digital Strategist at Imperva commented on the hacker group targets businesses in Guernsey.

[su_quote style=”modern-light”]Igal Zeifman, Senior Digital Strategist at Imperva :

“Based on our experience with mitigating several DD4BC assaults, the group commands enough botnet resources to launch mid-sized application layer and network layer DDoS attacks. While their ransom emails boast a 400-500Gbps capacity, the attacks we observed were significantly smaller, peaking at 40Gbps–less than “advertised” but still enough to bring down most unprotected network infrastructures.”[/su_quote][su_box title=”About Imperva” style=”noise” box_color=”#336588″]ImpervaImperva® (NYSE:IMPV), is a leading provider of cyber security solutions that protect business-critical data and applications.
