Criminals develop DDoS protection to stay online when rivals or law enforcement attack

Security researchers have discovered a newly launched DDoS protection filter mechanism dubbed EndGame advertised on the dark web community forum Dread.

According to a blog post by Digital Shadows, the new tool in the armoury of cybercriminals looks like a collaboration from many parts of the dark web to create a solution for an ongoing problem that many criminal forums have been experiencing – many are frequently knocked offline by rival threat actors or law enforcement trying to disable the platform.

EndGame basically works as an anti-DDoS measure for Dark Web sites, so for cybercriminals – especially Dark Web marketplace owners – it’s going to offer a degree of protection against DDoS attacks as they cannot use the anti-DDoS measures frequently deployed by their targets.
