    New era for internet security amid increased attacks

    By Maggie Shiels
    Technology reporter, BBC News, Silicon Valley

    "The attacks are getting more malicious, sophisticated, and from different directions," said the chief executive of Verisign Mark McLaughlin. Verisign itself is the target of around one to two thousand attacks a day, he added.

    "They come from all sorts of sources: from the frat kids trying to take down the internet to state-sponsored actors who are just pressing to see where the vulnerabilities are and how you react so they can use the information for the next time."
