Quotes

Are You a Janitor – Or a Cleaner – "John Stauffacher and Matt Hoy "
"The trans-national nature of cybercrime creates challenges for law enforcement to secure and analyse electronic evidence in countries from where the attacks originate, where there may be no or ineffective legal tools in place or insufficient capacity" the report says
...5 Tbps. In addition, he says, "heavy loads are split up and diffused across the network."
"Our advice is to patch, update anti-virus and run scans and most importantly take backups of critical data that are not accessible from your machine directly. This will have a better chance of cleaning out current infections of this sort than ever before, helping to reduce the risk of being affected in the future and reducing the impact should your critical data be encrypted or otherwise corrupted. If you are only going to do one thing then make sure you backup before the botnet returns."
