Botnets are a unique type of threat. The colossal power that networks of millions of compromised computers can reach allows botnets to do a lot of damage, from generating and stealing large sums of money to deploying dangerous attacks. Last year saw a 71.5% increase in botnets as opposed to 2018, further showing that botnets are a worthwhile business for attackers, and a prevalent threat to watch out for.
These malicious networks have been around since the very end of the 90’s, rapidly evolving and becoming more advanced, year by year. Our new infographic examines the most prevalent, well-known botnets from the beginning of the century up until today, shedding light on the diverse landscape and evolution of this fascinating threat.
Due to the impact of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), ThreatSTOP is offering 3 months of MyDNS free, or until the stay at home orders expire. Whichever is longer. With the COVID-19 crisis comes an unprecedented transition to a work from home workforce, and a massive increase in cyber attacks. Because people need to work from home, we want to provide the cyber security protection they should have at work, for free.
Unlike other solutions that send all your data or DNS queries to their Cloud, creating privacy issues and potentially exposing critical company data to hacking and theft through man-in-the-middle attacks, our MyDNS puts a DNS Firewall enabled DNS server onto your device, keeping your traffic under your control and preventing DNS hijacking by enforcing DNSSEC.
Easy and quick to set up, no hardware, no contracts or obligations, and we're here to help.
