Hello Everyone, today’s topic is about Hacking attacks on educational portal
The overall number of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks during the first three months of this year have been increased in attacks on educational websites as millions joined online classes during the pandemic. This can be due to the fact that Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) actors are taking advantage of the current situation when people are locked down in their homes
They are heavily reliant on digital resources,” according to the report from Kaspersky.
Previously most attacks were conducted against the public-facing resources of companies. DDOS attackers target for corporate VPN gateways or email servers, said Alexey Kiselev, Business Development Manager on the Kaspersky DDoS Protection team.
The US government’s Department of Health and Human Services and servers of an online game were all targeted by DDOS Attackers in February and March.
