Record-Breaking DDoS Attack Nears 400 Gbps

Web security company CloudFlare on Monday evening battled a massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that has eclipsed Spamhaus as the largest-ever such assault.

The attack, targeting one of CloudFlare's clients, peaked yesterday "just shy" of 400 gigabits per second, the company's CEO Matthew Prince told PCMag. In comparison, last year's record-breaking attack on Spamhaus reached 300 Gbps. A "normal" DDoS attack that might take down a bank website, for instance, is around 50 Gbps.
