The dangers of DNS reflection attacks (and how to mitigate them)?
WANT TO LEARN HOW TO MITIGATE THE DNS REFLECTION ATTACKS?
During the last years, many have seen an increasing trend for DNS reflection and DNS amplification attacks. Many DNS administrators are unaware of the problem and are therefore providing weapons for criminals.
Men&Mice experts put together a webinar that explains the nature of DNS reflection attacks and what DNS operators on Unix (BIND DNS) and Windows (Microsoft DNS) can do to prevent their DNS servers to be used as weapons in DNS reflection attacks.
The webinar illustrates:
- why these attacks are possible
- why these kinds of attacks are now being more popular (despite being known for many years)
- what every DNS administrator that runs DNS service on the Internet should be aware of
- how to tighten the DNS configuration to make the attacks less likely to succeed
