Internally our DDoS mitigation team is sometimes called "the packet droppers". When other teams build exciting products to do smart things with the traffic that passed through our network, we take joy in discovering novel ways of discarding it.
사내에서 DDoS 대응팀은 종종 "패킷 버리는 사람들"이라 불립니다. 다른 팀이 우리 네트워크를 통해 지나가는 트래픽으로 스마트한 일을 하며 신나할 때 우리는 그걸 버리는 여러가지 방법을 찾아가며 즐거워 합니다.
With more and more platforms taking the necessary precautions against DDoS attacks like integrating DDoS mitigation services and increasing bandwidth at weak points, Layer 3 and 4 attacks are just not as effective anymore.
A week ago we published a story about new amplification attacks using memcached protocol on UDP port 11211. A few things happened since then: Github announced it was a target of 1.3Tbps memcached attack. OVH and Arbor reported similar large attacks with the peak reported at 1.7Tbps.
Over last couple of days we've seen a big increase in an obscure amplification attack vector - using the memcached protocol, coming from UDP port 11211. In the past, we have talked a lot about amplification attacks happening on the internet.
