+ - World's largest DDoS strikes US, Europe->

Submitted by mask.of.sanity
mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "CloudFlare has been hit by what appears to be the world's largest denial of service attack, in an assault that exploits an emerging and frightening threat vector. The Network Time Protocol Reflection attack exploits a timing mechanism that underpins a way the internet works to greatly amplify the power of what would otherwise be a small and ineffective assault. CloudFlare said the attack tipped 400Gbps, 100Gbps larger than the previous record DDoS attack which used DNS reflective amplification."
