Cloudflare mitigated 2 Tbps DDoS attack, the largest attack it has seen to date


Cloudflare said that it had mitigated a distributed denialofservice (DDoS) attack with a peak of just under 2 terabytes per second (Tbps), the company's greatest attack to date.

A Mirai botnet variant with 15,000 bots started the attack, which included DNS amplification and UDP floods. Internet of Things (IoT) devices and GitLab instances were among the botnet's targets.
