A significant rise in distributed denial-of-service (DdoS) attacks in Israel has been detected.
According to Arbor Networks, the period of June 1st to August 3rd saw attacks rise, particularly in the first of week of July, where they went from an average of 30 attacks per day to 150 attacks per day. The peak was 429 attacks on July 21st.
In addition to the number of DDoS attacks initiated per day, we also notice an increase in the peak size of those attacks. Figure 2 illustrates that in June, no attack exceeded 12 Gbps. In July, seven attacks exceeded 12 Gbps, the largest peaking at 22.56 Gbps on July 12th. On August 3rd, after the cease-fire talks fell apart, the largest attack was observed at 29 Gbps.
