The cloud delivers many benefits to companies and users alike, but it has one clear disadvantage: its vulnerability to cyber threats. This was brought to light this past December. Linode – a Linux cloud hosting provider – suffered from a massive attack that lasted 10 days. The DDoS attack targeted numerous systems including nameservers, application servers, and routers. It even led to a suspected account breach forcing Linode’s users to reset their passwords.

Why Did This Happen to Linode?

One of the first things a company asks after an attack is “Why me?” Cloud providers are a perfect target because they host several services and always contain personal data such as a user’s address, phone number, credit card number, and other sensitive information. Linode offers cloud infrastructure for remote customers in need of Linux servers. Integrating IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) services makes a cloud service a critical part of business performance, so taking out Linode cripples its customers’ performance as well.

Linode doesn’t know the motive behind the attack, but the attacker’s persistence was evident. The attack,intended to cripple Linode’s services and disrupt customer activity, was a success and classified as highly sophisticated by Linode and other security experts.
