Warning! Targeted Internet misdirection on the rise
Unknown attackers have successfully hijacked and redirected Internet traffic belonging to financial services companies, VoIP providers and governments many times over the past year.
Internet monitoring firm Renesys says it's observed such hijacked traffic during at least 60 days in 2013.
A total of about 1,500 individual IP blocks from 150 cities around the world have been intercepted, inspected and possibly compromised in incidents lasting from a few minutes to several days, the company said today.
Throughout February, for instance, online traffic at numerous financial services companies, network service providers and government agencies in the U.S. South Korea, Germany, the Czech Republic, Iran and other countries was redirected to an Internet Service Provider in Belarus.
