Let’s take a journey through a real-life booter and stresser service to better understand the tools, the trade and pricing behind DDoS-as-a-Service.
The growth of DDoS-as-a-Service has resulted in a wide array of powerful and affordable DDoS services available to the public. Since the beginning of 2016, Radware’s ERT Research division has been monitoring a number of services available on both the clear and the darknet. These off-the-shelf attack services have been used to launch DDoS attacks on a number of industries including ISPs, media, financial service companies and online gaming. These services are commoditizing the art of hacking by making it possible for novices with no experience to launch large scale attacks.
