Is there such a thing as the Android Armageddon? Is it possible, in the first place? Well, you should not raise your eyebrows. We are not talking about the SF movie, but rather about the real life situation. So, what needs to happen in order to reach the cyber Armageddon requirements?
Believe it or not, according to the numerous cyber security experts there is a high level probability that the unimaginable DDoS attack of epic proportions may easily hit Android infrastructure, any moment now. How can this be possible? Is this an exaggeration?
Well, the unprecedented development in the Android field represents a strong encouragement for all bad Android boys and girls. You have a mobile OS, which is predominant in more than 90% of all smart devices. In addition, we are talking about the billions of potentially vulnerable devices.
As you can see our cyber stage is set for the worst case scenario. You do not have to wait too long for the volunteers, who are eager to build their hacker’s fame on the ruins of once powerful Android empire. Are we going to just sit and wait for Android Armageddon to happen?
Unbelievable. One more time we have realized that there is no such category called the dumb hacker. Why in the world, would you attack some of the most popular gaming networks during the Christmas week? It just does not make any sense. Unless. Unless, you are promoting yourself, for real.
Let us put it this way. If you are making weapons, what is the best possible way to promote your products? Oh dear, you either have to shoot someone or even worse to initiate a war. Forget about the ethics for a moment, and focus on the effectiveness itself, shall you? What is the result?
The Lizard Squad, which literally played with both the PSN and Xbox Live, was actually promoting its DDoS tools. Now, just like you are buying a legit software or a book online, you can acquire a DDoS package, which can guarantee you down time for a certain server for no less than 100 seconds.
In addition, for an affordable price of just six bucks you can do such a nasty thing. If you want to eliminate a website for the period of eight hours, then you will have to pay $130. How about that for a change? They are selling DDoS attacks per kilos. Unbelievable. What is next? Renting viruses or Trojans?
