“The attackers used an army of bots from around the globe to hammer the servers with bogus and abnormally large DNS requests – partially formed DNS messages of over 350 bytes each, according to a report from the ISC. The majority of the traffic came from nodes in Seoul (61 percent of the attack traffic) and Beijing (18 percent). Another 13 percent originated from nodes in San Francisco and another 7 percent elsewhere, according to ISC numbers”
Security can not be optional! Charging the end users for basic security, makes it less than optional!
Security MUST be available to everyone for free! Otherwise we are creating an army of bots that could turn against us!!
Exactly! While the vision was of Melih in armor on a horse slashing through bots yelling “Security MUST be available!” as a war cry, lol, there is no truer statement! Now I vision the moderators in armor as well yelling “ALL HAIL COMODO!” Where is Paulo in all this?..
From what I gather , most new zombie attacks come from China and U.S then South Korea. I know the U.S produced most spam second to SK. But yeah, mostly PRC out of 157000 a day, I think 22% or maybe higher are PRC related.
The rest of Zombie attacks come from graveyards and wherever nuclear radiation was spilled , they protrude from the soil looking for brains. They’ll be dissapointed when they hit my town…
They are talking about desktop security. There is a massive infrastructure required to be a player in the SSL industry, and money doesn’t grow on trees. There has to be money generated somewhere to enable the free stuff to be developed.
Although we call them code monkeys, developers don’t work for peanuts.
And, I must say thank you for Comodo Firewall freeware. Problems with all ID tagging; is how do we control it? Who all gets your info?? Who all keeps sharing it; and not knowing if their sharing it with unscrupulous “agents”? Shouldnt ones personal PC; be totally private??? Doesn’t a good firewall keep ones personal PC; invisible from the internutters??? Yes; I know; proxy servers etc…I say ; I hope. I don’t write basic anymore; and dont have as well versed in detail a look at code myself to really kick some butts; so I have to trust the folks in the know right now…and thats the largest segment of people right there.
You know, I wonder how many folks read all the “agreements” witht he software they agree to…all the small print? Its almost like we need a battery of attorneys and super high tech special;ists at our disposal to look out for our own intrests.
