Over a decade of DDOS--any progress yet?

Yes, and I have no problem with this in theory, I just wish that some of the larger ones could proactively monitor their networks to avoid crushing the smaller ones but maybe this is intentional.

I have seen a huge increase in the number of attacks originating from other "hosting" companies recently. Previously it had mainly been cable modems, etc.

It must be much easier to just target IaaS providers to build botnets because each machine there has 1Gbps than to worry about collecting 100 10Mbps cable modem customers.
