Google blocks the largest DDoS attack in history

Google said on its blog that in June it prevented the largest HTTPS DDoS attack in history with a density of 46 million requests per second. An unnamed Google Cloud Armor client has been attacked.

Google said that 10 seconds of a perfect attack is equivalent to receiving all queries on Wikipedia within one day, the incident occurred on June 1 and lasted 69 minutes.

“It is likely that the attacker decided that he could not have the desired effect while incurring significant costs to carry out the attack,” Google said in a report.

The company noted that more than 5,000 source IP addresses from 132 countries were logged during the attack, and linked DDoS to the Meris botnet, which was previously used in other large-scale incidents.
