Recommended Posts

Google is reporting that a state-sponsored hacking group launched the biggest DDoS attack on record against the company back in Sept. 2017. 

On Friday, Google’s cloud business disclosed the incident, which involved bombarding the company’s internet networks with a flood of traffic.

The DDoS attack lasted over a six-month campaign, peaking to 2.5Tbps in traffic.

But despite the 2.5Tbps assault simultaneously targeting thousands of Google servers back in 2017, the “attack had no impact,” 

How incompetent of them.

What a surprise

According to Google’s security team, the 2.5Tbps DDoS against the company was sourced back to a government-backed group that harnessed four internet service providers in China to send the flood of traffic.
