RIPE NCC is the RIR (Regional Internet Registry) that provides global internet services like providing IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for Europe and the Middle East and Autonomous System Numbers resources (RIPE NCC discloses SSO service).
Recently on March 27th, 2021, RIPE NCC experienced a DDOS attack, the issue was resolved in 2 days. But this was not the first time this kind of attack happened, in February 2021, RIPE NCC’s access of SSO or single sign-n service saw a ‘credential stuffing attack’, causing downtime of their servers. However, all the SSO accounts were safe and were not breached(RIPE NCC discloses SSO service).
What is a credential stuffing attack?
In this attack, bots are used to stuff a list of credentials to breach an organization’s system. Like usernames and passwords which were compromised and assumes that users may reuse the same credentials.
After this attack, RIPE NCC released a message and has requested all its account holders, that count to more than 20,000 to enable two-factor authentication to protect their accounts(RIPE NCC discloses SSO service).
It is very important that RIPE NCC strengthens its security as it is the only RIR to provide IPv4 addresses and IPv6 addresses in the EMEA region. There is a huge demand for IPv4 addresses in the secondary market since they are exhausted. If cyber hackers managed to breach RIPE NCC’s servers and hijack IPs, then they will use these IPs for spamming and more cyber-attacks.

Did you know that an estimated 300 million passwords are used by humans and machines worldwide? The Information security market is estimated to reach $170 billion by 2022, which shows the need for businesses to secure their infrastructure.
In 2020 alone, cyber-attacks around the world had crossed $1 trillion, as people are now working from home with unstable and insecure home internet. This has posed the biggest threat for cyber-attacks on businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, as hackers can easily hack into an employee’s home internet service and through that breach their laptop and eventually to their office infrastructure.
Therefore, it is of utmost importance that employees also must be provided with robust connections from home or use end-end encryption to send and receive communications.
