    Cyber Monday DDOS

    How wonderful it is to get DDOS attacks immediately after offering a CyberMonday deal.

    Whoever it is, wtf!

      i stopped posting offer years back as i lost much days to filter bad ips... dont wish to get ddos again.

      even i afraid to post comment in let. hope this is private to providers only.
      i have moved to ovh for migrating attack and it works well to keep site up. choose ovh or other best providers.

      We have mitigation in place but it still affects our service quality. To some locations, we see higher latency and of course this also affects throughput. It's mostly just annoying. But whoever it is, is lurking on this forum, and they are a little prick!

      Concurrent, unhappy client, etc... or even for no real reasons, ... the Internet became a very hostile place.

      No, it's not.

      We have received ddos aswell

      I am quite naive when it comes to ddos so if you guys could fill me in, I would appreciate it. When ddos protection kicks in, what sort of latency difference is there?

      The reason I ask is that for example, I tested sites in different locations varying from 30ms pings to 110ms pings, while there is a bit of a difference with loading times, it has never been super dramatic for me at least when loading webpages.

    • risharde said: When ddos protection kicks in, what sort of latency difference is there?

      I guess it depends of the host / provider. I can talk only about OVH, but, a couple of years ago, I get DDos quite a lot, during two months, I have no idea why, I just have an information site, with a forum, so may be a kid was pissed at something someone told him, I don't know. This was a Kimsufi server, and I get a notification, that a DDos was on going, and protection activated, then a couple of hours later, that the DDos was over. During these periods, I never noticed any change in the latency, or other connectivity aspects.

      Keep in mind, DDoS means, someone thinks you are important.
      You should be happy instead of complaining on LET.

      Indeed. But, I guess, that when you are a provider, and your site is inaccessible, or very slow because of a DDos (I guess this was the problem of the OP), this is not a good signal sent to your (future) clients... Good DDos protection is a must have today.

      Depending on how your network is designed, it may have no effect at all. In our case, some of our routes get congested, and so we need to disable those routes. Disabling those routes means higher latency as the other routes are not as 'good' for some locations. Higher latency generally results in lower throughput.

      Some people won't notice anything at all. So our customers in Europe probably won't notice anything as the route mostly does not change for them.

      We didn't go down or slow to a crawl. Just had to disable certain routes. It's more of a nuisance than anything else. Just don't understand why people do it. What is the motivation? Don't people have better things to do?

      Dedispec is slow as fuck and the webpanel is almost unusable due to 10 seconds loading times, but people still buy from them.

      Between Thursday and yesterday evening we were averaging a new attack every hour. A new record of 14 clients mitigation at a time at peak.

      Hopefully I'll be able to get a full nights sleep tomorrow night as it all calms down.

      As long as we disable the routes susceptible to congestion in the event of a DDoS attack, we're good and golden.

      I call our DDoS protected routes my sleep well routes. They are not cheap, nor are they particularly fast, but they do a good job of handling 100s of GBit in DDoS, and I letting me and my colleagues some sleep. 1 night (or possibly longer) of slightly higher latency or slightly slower speeds doesn't tend to bother anyone, so we don't even get any complaints. Now if only Asian traffic were actually cheap enough to just buy hundreds of Gigs worth to ensure high performance even when under attack.

      There is a great deal of knightsmanship.
      The spirit of ddosesness visited me too, which means i've been a dick and someone cares.
      Caring is loving and i don't feel alone anymore. :smile:

      PS: I remember once @deank said i have this great ability of bringing people to knives over total non-sense.
      Absolutely right, sound observation - it's a gift from the universe.
      Idiocy, in it's purest form, shall save this world, quite likely.
