This is the most powerful botnet ever seen Newshubweek

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS (opens in new tab)) attacks just keep getting bigger, with Akamai claiming to have mitigated a 853.7 Gbps (gigabits per second) and 659.6 Mpps (million packets per second) attack against a company in Eastern Europe.

The attack breaks the previous record (itself only established a mere month and a half ago), and although it’s standard practice not to disclose the victims’ names, but given that it’s Eastern Europe, it’s safe to assume this has something to do with the war in Ukraine.
