Submission + - DDoS attackers start targeting IPv6 networks (techworld.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "Criminals have started launching distributed DDoS attacks against networks that transmit data over IPv6, according to Arbor Networks. Even though 2011 was the first year when IPv6 DDoS attacks were recorded, such incidents remain rare because they are not economically relevant for Internet criminals, according to Bill Cerveny, a senior software quality assurance engineer at Arbor. Some companies have projected increases of more than 100 percent for their IPv6 traffic volumes over the next 12 months, but the changes will be insignificant compared to the overall traffic volume."
