Amazon AWS mitigated a 2.3 Tbps DDoS cyberattack

05/29/2020

According to Amazon's statements, in its latest Amazon AWS Shield report, the system in charge of monitoring the security of the AWS server infrastructure (Amazon Web Services), had faced what is probably the largest DDoS attack (Distributed Denial of Service) from the history of the Internet, a 2.3 Tbps attack.

According to the information released by the company, the attackers tried to bring down the servers using the Connectionless Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (CLDAP), causing a great threat to Amazon AWS Shield personnel, for three days, in mid-February this year.
