StormWall expects a 130% increase in DDoS worldwide. The new wave of DDoS is predicted to start in September 2022 and will target several sectors, but most of all it will affect business. As the Russian-Ukrainian crisis unfolded in February 2022, activists began developing new DDoS utilities aimed at shutting down Russian internet infrastructure. These open source tools will soon find their way into the hands of the global hacking community, StormWall experts say.

Experts believe that hackers use both common publicly available tools, originally intended for testing, and specially developed new utilities that they distribute as open source software. Newly developed tools are updated weekly and most updates improve their effectiveness. Since the software is free, it only needs computing resources to run, which in most cases attackers already have access to.

Based on the latest hacktivist data analyzed Storm wall According to experts, DDoS attacks that will take place in the near future, possibly in the fall of 2022, will be among the most destructive to date. Based on previous attacks observed by StormWall experts, it is predicted that the power of the new attacks will peak at 700,000 requests per second with an average of 5,000 requests per second. The duration will vary from 10 hours to a maximum of several days. Most companies do not have the means to deal with a DDoS attack of this magnitude without a professional mitigation solution.

A coordinated group of more than 200,000 hacktivists targeted the Russian economy. Since February 24, 2022, they have been carrying out powerful DDoS attacks on the Russian government and business sectors. These attacks are unusually powerful, peaking at 700,000 requests per second and sometimes lasting several days.

“We’ve been tracking the hackers for six months and what we’re seeing is disconcerting. They are very adaptable. They are learning and evolving, and they have already created some very effective free DDoS tools. Unfortunately, it’s only a matter of time before more threat actors adapt them. This year, you will experience unprecedentedly strong DDoS attacks. We advise companies to get professional cyber protection as soon as possible,” – Ramil Khantymirov, CEO and co-founder of StormWall.
