The State of the Internet Report also includes insight into distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks based on reports from Akamai customers. In the second quarter of 2013, Akamai customers reported 318 attacks, a 54 percent increase over the 208 reported in the first quarter. At 134 reported attacks, the enterprise sector continued to be the leading target of DDoS attacks, followed by commerce (91), media and entertainment (53), high-tech (23) and the public sector (17).

The SEA claimed responsibility for several attacks against news and media companies during the second quarter of 2013. The attacks all employed similar spear-phishing tactics in which internal e-mail accounts were compromised and leveraged to collect credentials to gain access to targets' Twitter feeds, RSS feeds and other sensitive information.

Global Internet Penetration

Beyond attack stats, Akamai also shared global Internet penetration data. More than 752 million unique IPv4 addresses from 242 unique countries and regions connected to the Akamai Intelligent Platform, a 2 percent quarter-over-quarter increase and 13 percent more than the second quarter of 2012. Since a single IP address can represent multiple individuals in some cases -- such as when users access the Web through a firewall or proxy server -- Akamai estimates the total number of unique Web users connecting to its platform during the quarter to be well over one billion.

"The Second Quarter, 2013 State of the Internet Report notes some significant milestones and trends, including the fact that half of all connections to Akamai occurred at speeds of 4 Mbps or higher, a 25 percent increase since the first quarter of 2012," said David Belson, the report's editor.

"We also saw a decline in the number of countries/regions with average connection speeds of 1 Mbps or less -- down to 11 from 14 in the last quarter -- likely indicative of improved broadband connectivity across some of the slowest geographies. These positive trends bode well for the continued increase and adoption of broadband connectivity around the world."
