High-speed and high-volume: Hailstorm spam is one method cyber criminals are using to overwhelm target organizations’ defenses, but Spamhaus is leading the fight back with threat intelligence delivered at high-speed.
Dynamic Updates from Spamhaus protect by alerting you to hailstorm attacks within seconds of them starting, giving you the unique capability to block this type of spam.
Hailstorm attacks can be over in a matter of minutes and every second counts.
At the first indication of a hailstorm attack, automatic incremental updates are made available. Instead of downloading a full set of IP and Domain-based threat intelligence periodically, Dynamic Updates allow you to receive data as soon as it is available.
In three minutes, more than 15,000 spam messages sent –85% blocked by DynamicUpdates service at start of attack. Indicative real case example– individual attack profiles will vary.
Table showing how dynamic updates compares to DQSIncluded is Spamhaus’ Zero Reputation Domain (ZRD) service, designed to stop cyber criminals who use newly registered domains. This is a favoured method to send hailstorm spam; driving traffic to websites in the hope that users will fall victim before a domain has been analyzed for its reputation.
Legitimate organizations will rarely activate a domain and start using it immediately after registration so the ZRD automatically adds newly-registered and previously dormant domains to a block list for 24 hours.
Deploy Dynamics Updates in minutes following these easy steps:
