Re: In Cyberattacks on Banks, Evidence of a New Weapon
said by KodiacZiller:Yes, I struggled with clarity on that. said by Snowy:
Web site owners are generally not too concerned about having sophisticated/state sponsored attacks pointed at them but the fear, uncertainty & doubt that can come from believing that a single kid working from their parents basement in Ohio could adversely affect their site is a more real scenario, a more profitable scenario, especially if your CloudFlare.
Website owners are much more likely to face a threat from a script kiddie than from China or Iran.
The point I tried to make is that CloudFlare tried to make it appear as if a script kiddy working alone in their parents garage 'could' have pulled off the attack when that simply isn't true in Sep-Oct 2012
