Increase in Chinese "Hacktivism" Attacks
As US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's planned visit to Taiwan approaches, the Internet Storm Center is seeing an increase in small to medium denial of service attacks against websites that either report the visit or are considered otherwise hostile to China. At this point, these attacks are likely uncoordinated and conducted by "hacktivists." The DDoS attacks use smaller botnets and appear to target websites by exhausting server resources, not bandwidth. If you consider yourself a possible target, it may be advisable to keep monitoring the response times of your websites and to check in with your anti-DDoS service.
