Cloudflare suffered a Record-Breaking DDoS Attack with a peak of 26 Million Request Per Second
Cloudflare disclosed that it had acted to prevent a record-setting 26 million request per second (RPS) distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack last week, making it the largest HTTPS DDoS attack detected to date.
The botnet is said to have created a flood of more than 212 million HTTPS requests within less than 30 seconds from over 1,500 networks distributed in at least 121 countries, including big countries such as Indonesia, the U.S., Brazil, Russia, and India.
This attack was mostly originated from Cloud Service Providers as opposed to Residential Internet Service Providers, which indicates the attackers hijacked virtual machines and powerful servers to generate the attack — as opposed to much weaker Internet of Things (IoT) devices,” Cloudflare’s Omer Yoachimik said.
Considering the computation point of view, the most expensive DDoS attacks are HTTPS-based due to the higher cost associated with establishing a secure TLS encrypted connection.
This is nothing new for Cloudflare in the past months, 2 months ago, in April 2022, it said it staved off a 15.3 million RPS HTTPS DDoS attack aimed at a customer operating a crypto launchpad.
