The Russian DDoS One: Booters to Botnets

December 12, 2014
This presentation was originally given by Dennis Schwarz, ASERT senior security analyst, at BotConf 2014. It explores Russian DDoS One, or RD1, which is an informal grouping of threat actors that provide DDoSing services (read: DDoS booters) on public, Russian language, and underground hacking forums. This presentation explores RD1's DDoS tools and techniques and ultimately maps some booters to botnets.
