VB2019 paper: Exploring the Chinese DDoS landscape

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Dec 19, 2019

China has long been a hotbed of DDoS activities, with several groups operating in this space and attacks being performed that are criminal in nature but also that are in line with the country's geopolitical interests.

In a paper presented a VB2019 in London, Intezer researcher Nacho Sanmillan explored the Chinese DDoS threat landscape. In particular he focused on two actors, ChinaZ and Nitol, and the links between them. He also found interesting links between the DDoS actors and a Chinese APT group.

Today we publish Nacho's paper in both HTML and PDF format. We have also uploaded the recording of his presentation at VB2019 in London to our YouTube channel.
