Microsoft says it blocked the largest DDoS attack it’s ever seen

Microsoft has revealed that last November, it mitigated a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack with a throughput of 3.47 Tbps, and a packet rate of 340 million packets per second (pps). That makes it, according to Microsoft, the largest DDoS attack reported – ever.

Roughly 10,000 endpoints participated in the attack, coming from various places in the world, from the United States, China, South Korea, Russia, to Thailand, India, Vietnam, Iran, Indonesia, and Taiwan. All of these are most likely consumer devices, such as laptops, routers, and smart gadgets, laden with malware and controlled from a remote server.
