The Largest Internet Attack In History Is Coming.. ARE YOU READY!?

This morning we are posting a follow-up to our monthly attack report for March. During our analysis of last month’s data, we discovered that Algeria had moved from 60 on our “Top 25 Attacking Countries” list to position 24.
 
That was a big jump for a country we rarely see. We dug deeper and uncovered a large distributed botnet made up of hacked home routers. We then went deeper and found that this is a global problem and they are all targeting WordPress websites.
 
In this morning’s post, we explain how these routers were hacked, which ISPs are affected, how the attackers are behaving and why this may soon lead to one of the largest distributed attacks in internet history.
