News from Wintercorn about Joomla!, WordPress and other tech subjects

In 2022 almost half of all internet traffic came from bots

A new report reveals that in 2022, 47.4% of all internet traffic came from bots, a 5.1% increase over the previous year. The same report showed that human traffic, at 52.6%, decreased to its lowest level in eight years.

This week, Imperva released its 10th annual Bad Bot Report, a global analysis of automated bot traffic across the internet. The annual report provides security and business leaders with information about the evolution of bot technology and automated traffic. This year’s report also documents milestones in the evolution of bad bot technology.  For the fourth consecutive year, the volume of bad bot traffic — malicious automated software applications capable of high-speed abuse, misuse and attacks — grew to 30.2%, a 2.5% increase over 2021.

Automated business logic attacks are on the rise, driven by bad bots that can evade detection while wreaking havoc and enabling online fraud. Bad bots mimic human behavior and abuse business logic, allowing threat operators and fraudsters to perform a wide array of malicious activities. Each year, Imperva analyzes data from their global network to investigate the evolution of automated attacks and the bad bots that drive them, documenting the findings in the Bad Bot Report.
