Prolexic Stops Largest Ever DNS Reflection DDoS Attack

167 Gbps Attack Targets Real-Time Financial Exchange Platform

(PresseBox) (Hollywood, Florida, )
Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, announced today that it has successfully mitigated the largest DNS reflection attack ever recorded, which peaked at 167 Gigabits per second (Gbps). The attack, the largest single DDoS attack Prolexic has mitigated in its 10-year history, was directed against a real-time financial exchange platform on May 27, 2013.

“This was a massive attack that made up in brute force what it lacked in sophistication,” said Scott Hammack, chief executive officer at Prolexic. “Because of the proactive DDoS defense strategies Prolexic had put in place with this client, no afvefjpha siqmwgf ssigocl prc quafahg jte gimvormo xii zqirxuf.
