State of the Internet: Fewer Attacks Than Previous Quarter

Akamai’s latest report shows less attacks than in the previous quarter. These are some of the key findings:

  • China was again responsible for originating the most attacks, but dropped slightly from 43% in the fourth quarter of 2013 to 41% in the first quarter of 2014.
  • The United States followed in second place, but also saw a decline from 19% to 11%.
  • Indonesia saw a slight uptick from 5.7% to 6.8% to secure third place.

Microsoft-DS remained the most targeted port in the first quarter of 2014, but the associated attack traffic volume was down to 14% of observed attack traffic (from 30% in the third quarter of 2013). The number of DDoS attacks reported in the first quarter of 2014 declined to 283 from 346 in the last quarter of 2013 — a 20% decrease quarter-over-quarter and a 27% increase year-over-year, meaning that the most regions of the world saw a decline in reported DdoS attacks during the first quarter of 2014. The enterprise sector saw a 49% quarter-over-quarter reduction in attack traffic, while public sector attack traffic grew by 34%, primarily attributable to attacks against government targets within Singapore.

Epoch, a Real-Time Visualisation Library by Fastly

Running a high performance website requires insight through metrics, which means collecting a large amount of data. Data is often untidy, slow to access, and requires analysis before meaning can be derived. Fastly’s new project offers a unique solution; Epoch is a general purpose real-time charting library for building high performance visualizations, developed for historical reporting (large data sets that only change given user interaction) and real-time monitoring (much smaller data sets and receive new data points every second).

Basically it’s a general purpose, real-time visualisation library, presenting itself in both code and basic and real-time charts. Real-time monitoring is adressed via HTML5 Canvas-based charts. Epoch is currently in open beta (0.5.1. beta).

Visit the project page on GitHub to download the library.

For the full info of Epoch metrics and how-it-works steps, go to Fastly blog.
