Cloud infrastructure company FireHost blocked over 100 million malicious hack attempts in 2013, many of them coming from cloud service provider networks, according to a new report.
Why has the total number of attacks reported by FireHost dropped from more than 17,000,000 in Q3 2013 to less than 9,000,000 in Q4 2013? FireHost claims this is at least partly to do with it’s IP reputation management filtering service that is creating a “black hole” effect in which would-be hackers don’t even attempt attacks on FireHost’s servers.
