Renting a DDoS attack on the Dark Web is going for $10/h, $200/day, or for $500-$1,2000 for week-long attacks according to Armor. Andrew Lloyd, President at Corero Network Security commented below.

Andrew Lloyd, President at Corero Network Security:

“This data is order of magnitude consistent with what we’ve seen before.  The data confirms that for as little as $100, you can acquire a DDoS attack sufficient to wreak havoc upon the victim.  Corero’s primary research reveals that enterprises estimate the cost to the victim of a successful DDoS attack at $50,000; this figure includes the direct cost to recover from the attack and an estimate of the lost revenue & reputational damage.  With this 500:1 imbalance in the criminal’s favour, it is no surprise that many enterprises are actively upgrading their defences from legacy DDoS technologies that typically mitigate in tens of minutes to real-time solutions that mitigate in seconds.”
