Submission + - The DDoS That Almost Broke the Internet->

Em Adespoton writes: "Had any network issues over the last week? CloudFlare, an AnyCast, Anti-DDoS network provider writes, "Our direct peers quickly filtered attack traffic at their edge. This pushed the attack upstream to their direct peers, largely Tier 1 networks. Tier 1 networks don't buy bandwidth from anyone, so the majority of the weight of the attack ended up being carried by them. While we don't have direct visibility into the traffic loads they saw, we have been told by one major Tier 1 provider that they saw more than 300Gbps of attack traffic related to this attack. That would make this attack one of the largest ever reported.""
