Prolexic Technologies has added an extensive glossary of DoS and DDoS terms to its online Knowledge Center, explaining the tools and methods hackers use to target organizations.
The Glossary of Terms defines more than 60 common acronyms and technical terms used to describe DDoS attacks. Such attacks increased 10% in Q2 2012, according to the Prolexic Security Engineering & Response Team (PLXsert). Armed with this new resource, at-risk businesses can now decipher industry jargon to better understand the nature of a potential denial of service threat.
Prolexic will update the glossary frequently to keep pace with emerging threats and trends, and is available free to the public and does not require registration.
