The Federal Aviation Administration has now given permission to Amazon to begin outdoor test flights of its delivery drones. However the FAA also placed limitations on the operation of those drones.

The restrictions include limiting drone flights to no more than 400 feet above ground level and testing must be performed in clear weather during daylight hours. The drone operator must have a private pilot's license with a current medical certificate. In addition, the operator must have line of sight visibility of the drone when it's flying.

Distributed denial-of-service attacks are often associated with large bursts of attack traffic that last for hours at a time. However, a report from Corero Network Security has found that the majority of DDoS attacks in the fourth quarter of 2014 lasted 30 minutes or fewer.

The short-duration DDoS attacks represented 96 percent of attacks against Corero's customers in that quarter. While the DDoS attacks were short in duration, Corero reported in its DDoS Trends and Analysis quarterly report that its customers saw an average of 3.9 attacks per day.
