Alliance formed to counter DoS attacks

Posted on Wednesday, March 30 2005 @ 11:50:10 CEST by

Global telecommunications providers and network operators have formed an alliance to counter malicious internet attacks. The group hopes to form a front against the threat of Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks which continued to grow over the past few years.
"We're seeing more technology-savvy criminals trying to make money through Denial-of-Service extortion schemes," Jim Slaby, a senior Yankee Group analyst, said in a statement. "Service providers that are cooperating by sharing attack fingerprints are helping mitigate these threats more quickly and closer to the source, thus making the Internet a more secure place."
Companies like Deutsche Telekom, MCI, NTT, Cisco and Earthlink joined the alliance and are expected to share detailed real-time profiles of attacks and to block attacks closer to the source.
