Scribbled Arrow

Google Cloud Armor customers were hit by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) directed at the HTTPS protocol.

It reached 46 million requests per second (RPS), making this the most significant attack of its kind.

The attack escalated quickly from 100,000 RPS to 46 million RPS in just 2 minutes. 

This is almost 80% more than Cloudflare had previously recorded for an HTTPS DDoS of 26 million RPS.

The attack began at 09:45 Pacific Time on June 1st and was initially limited to 10,000 RPS.

The attack reached 46 million requests per second just two minutes later. 

Google claims that the attack peaked at 46 million requests per second. This is equivalent to obtaining all daily Wikipedia requests in 10 seconds.

Google researchers found that attack traffic originated from only 5,256 IP addresses in 132 countries.

They leveraged encrypted requests (HTTPS) to indicate that the devices that sent the requests had powerful computing resources.
