 In our just released Q1 2014 Global DDoS attack report, we analyze emerging threats and trends in the DDoS landscape.
In Q1, we found that  DDoS attackers relied less upon traditional botnet infection in favor of reflection and amplification techniques. Instead of using a network of zombie computers, the newer DDoS toolkits can abuse Internet protocols that are available on open or vulnerable servers and devices.

#cybersecurity   threat: NTP Amplification DDoS toolkit [high risk]
As the security community scrambles to reduce the number of vulnerable NTP servers, attackers find ways to hit harder with fewer servers.

Fueled by the availability of new DDoS toolkits that make it simple from malicious actors to generate high-bandwidth, high-volume DDoS attacks against online targets, the NTP amplification attack method has surged in popularity. 

With only a handful of vulnerable NTP servers, the current batch of NTP amplification attack toolkits enable malicious actors to launch 100 Gbps attacks – or larger. The most recent toolkit uses an NTP server’s own list of recent server connections – as many as 600 IP addresses – as the payload to create malicious traffic at the target site.
