Imperva documented DDoS attacks coming out of South Korea at a rate nearly triple that of Russia, which came in second.
"The Researchers have reported that the attack was launched from a botnet make up of computers infected with the Nitol malware.”
"However, with application-layer attacks, which are also known as HTTP floods, the goal is to consume the computing resources – CPU and RAM – that a Web server has at its disposal to process requests.”
