Google Cloud has revealed it blocked the largest seven-layer distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack ever recorded. The attack happened on June 1 which peaked at 46 million requests per second (rps). This was 76 percent larger than the previously reported large scale attack. Google Cloud’s Armor DDoS protection service was able to stop the large-scale attack at the edge of Google’s network.
Denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have increased in frequency and scale over the past few years. Several attacks have been registered this year alone with increasing magnitude.
