In Q4 2018, security researchers detected a number of new botnets, which included not only Mirai clones for a change. The fall saw increased activity on the part of the [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] bot, whose first attacks were registered in late August. Although the new malware employs snippets of Mirai code and the same persistence techniques as in the Xor.DDoS bot family, Chalubo is mostly a fresh product designed solely for DDoS attacks (for example, one of the detected samples was a SYN flood one). In October, Chalubo began to be seen more often in the wild; researchers detected versions created for different architectures (32- and 64-bit ARM, x86, x86_64, MIPS, MIPSEL, PowerPC), which strongly suggests that the test period is over.

Also in October, details were released of the new [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] botnet, which Avast experts detected a month earlier. The botnet is aimed at a wide range of IoT devices and architectures. Its code differs significantly from Mirai — the malware is better hidden with a higher level of persistence, and thus promises to be far more dangerous. The malware collects and sends detailed information about infected devices to its C&C server, including host name and process ID, but for what purpose remains unclear. No DDoS attacks based on Torii botnets were detected, but experts believe that it’s still early days.

In brief: Kaspersky Lab data indicates that attackers are using less sophisticated methods like UDP flooding to test the waters, presumably reserving coordinated and complex attacks such as HTTP floods for vulnerable targets.
Kaspersky Lab in its latest DDoS Intelligence report recorded 13 percent less DDoS activity in 2018 compared to the previous year.

The number of attacks was down in each quarter of 2018 compared to 2017 save for the third quarter due to an unusually active September. Q4 was the least active quarter as attacks were down 30 percent year-over-year.
