DDoS Update: Credit Unions in the Crosshairs
One year ago, credit unions personally felt the sting of a well-coordinated DDoS attack as both the $4 billion Patelco Credit Union in Pleasanton, Calif. institution, and the $1.6 billion University Federal Credit Union in Austin, Texas, were knocked offline for hours in January and again in February.
And then there was quiet. Reports of DDoS attacks against credit unions grew scarce. An upshot is that among credit union executives, there again is a growing sense that credit unions won't be targeted even if DDoS returns as a prominent attack format, said many experts.
