"Malicious actors are using this new attack vector to perform large-scale DDoS attacks,” said Stuart Scholly, senior vice president and general manager for the security business unit at Akamai. “PLXsert began seeing attacks from UPnP devices in July, and they have become common.” "
"These devices are not very strong with either security or with auditing. So if I can get the entire thermostat infrastructure to attack somebody, why would I not do that? It's hard to audit them. They don't have auditing capabilities. They don't have security capabilities. If it's grandma's house, grandma doesn't care as long as the thermostat's working, right. So I think it's a huge issue."
...Green (aka the blogger "Jack of Kent") for the OpenOpen Rights Group that the block should contain information about who asked for the block, and "that affected users should have the right to apply to the Court to discharge or vary the order"
Yonggang Han, chief operating officer of global business, NSFOCUS, said: "In selecting an IDC or MSSP, a customer¹s primary concerns are about security, data protection and uninterrupted service. Customers demand that illegal access be blocked and that there be no interruption of legitimate traffic to their sites. NSFOCUS¹s optimized hardware and software designs apply the behavioural statistics and reputation mechanisms to defence against more sophisticated DDoS attacks, enabling a secure ecosystem for hosting providers, IDCs and MSSPs."
