A large European bank suffers the largest DDos attack (809M Mpps) this month.

A large European bank suffers the largest DDos attack (809M Mpps) this month.

The Attack was mitigated by Akamai

On June 21, 2020, Akamai mitigated the largest packet per second (PPS) distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack ever recorded on the Akamai platform. The attack generated 809 million packets per second (Mpps), targeting a large European bank.

The attack can easily be a contender for the largest DDoS incident to date, despite not being a bandwidth-intensive attack, with a footprint of just 418Gbps.

Akamai did not disclose the name of the customer defended against the take down, referring to them as a large European bank.

Suspected of this operation is a new botnet emerging from the underground. This conclusion is based on the high number of IP addresses involved in the attack that were seen for the first time. 96.2% of them were unknown to Akamai until now.
