DDos Attack Map Charts Denial of Service

Oct 22, 2013

A new web application helps users visualize distributed denial-of-service attacks.

Arbor Networks and the Google Ideas group have collaborated to launch a new web app that maps denial-of-service attacks around the world. The Digital Attack Map shows a graphic representation of DDoS data that Arbor Networks has collected using its Atlas Threat Monitor. The site is updated daily.
In addition to helping with the Digital Map Attack site, Google Ideas has also contributed to creating a browser extension called uProxy that will protect users against eavesdropping on the Internet. uProxy was developed by the University of Washington and Brave New Software.
