Episode 1 – We’re starting the podcast series with a big bang and in this episode we’re focusing entirely on the world of DDoS attacks. I interview the New World Hackers, the hacking group who notoriously brought down the BBC on New Year’s Eve with a massive 602 Gbps DDoS attack.
We discuss who the New World Hackers are, and what they stand for, and who they’ll be targeting going forward. We get technical on what really happened with the BBC and dive head first into the methods used by black hats to take down their victims. We then discuss how to protect yourself from a DDoS attack, what technologies are worthwhile (and which are not) and what tools you can use to maintain your Opsec online.
