UDP Attacks

[L4] UDP Flood

How does this attack type works ?

  • This is an attack focused to be consuming all the available bandwidth of the target host.

What does it means in practical terms ?

  • Within this attack type, an attacker can potentially consume all the available bandwidth capacity in the target host or even in the datacenter.
  • There are variants, where this attack is made to become packet intensive, causing routers or switches to start failing to serve the network.
  • Other variantes of this attack, are meant to cause issues with specific UDP Applications.
  • The zombie bots in the example, can either be infected regular user computers or compromised servers in any organization.

[L4] DNS Amplification

How does this attack type works ?

  • Another attack focused to be consuming all the available bandwidth of the target host.

What does it means in practical terms ?

  • The main difference with this attack type, is the hability to amplify the attack strength by using exploitable DNS Servers on the internet.
  • An attacker will search and make a big list containing the exploitable DNS Servers, with this data he will be able to control a ‘virtual’ network of exploited servers.
  • Within a master server, he will send forged packets, with the target host IP as requester (source spoofed IP), making all the DNS replies to be sent to the target host.
  • This will cause the host to get down easy, with the amount of bandwidth in use, up to 64x or more, than the original used bandwidth to launch this attack.
  • The zombie bots in the example, can either be infected regular user computers or compromised servers in any organization.
