Did you know that 16.1% of bad bots now masquerade as mobile devices? Or that bad bot traffic is up 36.43% on the world’s largest site since 2015?
Distil Networks has produced their fourth annual Bad Bot Report. It is the IT security industry's most in-depth analysis on the sources, types, and sophistication levels of 2016’s bot attacks -- and there are serious implications for anyone responsible for securing websites and APIs.
Bad bots are expanding at an epidemic rate creating a scourge across the Internet. Bots are the primary culprits behind widespread attack vectors including web scraping, competitive data mining, account takeovers, transaction fraud, unauthorized vulnerability scans, spam, man-in-the-middle attacks, digital ad fraud, API abuse, and application denial of service.
