On Thursday OVH founder and CTO Octave Klaba tweeted that “Last days, we got lot of huge DDoS. Here, the list of “bigger that 100Gbps” only. You can see the simultaneous DDoS are close to 1Tbps !”
Tweet also contains the screenshot explaining that multiple attacks exceeding 100 Gbps were directed towards OVH servers including simultaneously occurring 1 Tbps attacks.
Next day, Klaba said ( via a tweet) that that the attackers used hacked Internet of Things device (IoT) including surveillance cameras to conduct DDoS attacks on his company’s servers.
It’s seems that there is a race going on for DDos, isn’t?
