“71 percent of hostnames appeared for just 24 hours. While the majority of these “One-Day Wonders” are the backbone for how Internet content is shared and delivered, the sheer volume provides cover for malicious activity, including communication to infected systems. ” states the post published by Blue Coat
“While most One-Day Wonders are essential to legitimate Internet practices and aren’t malicious, the sheer volume of them creates the perfect environment for malicious activity,” said Tim van der Horst, senior threat researcher for Blue Coat Systems. “The rapid building up and tearing down of new and unknown sites destabilizes many existing security controls. Understanding what these sites are and how they are used is a key to building a better security posture.”
The only way to prevent such attacks it to improve security with adoption of real-time intelligence systems that can help security experts to quickly identify malicious One Day Wonders.
