A DDoS attack that targeted a Chinese e-commerce company lasted for a week. According to Prolexic this was the biggest attack launched so far, 3 times bigger than the second biggest. The attack had four waves and happened between November 5th and November 12th. The company will remember this attack on November 5th and not only V for Vendetta (“Remember remember the 5th of November”). The attack had a peak of 45Gbit/s which is more than the company can handle. The traffic can be translated to thousands of connections per second. Even though this was a huge attack I believe than soon we will have a bigger one.
