DDoS Attack Power Skyrockets To 1.6 Tbps
HelpNet Security, Monday, February 5th, 2024
The maximum attack power rose from 800 Gbps (1H 2023) to 1.6 Tbps. UDP floods continue to dominate, constituting 62% of DDoS attacks. TCP floods and ICMP attacks also remain popular at 16% and 12% of the total, respectively.

All other DDoS attack types, including SYN, SYN+ACK flood, and RST Flood, accounted for a mere 10% combined. While some attackers may use these more sophisticated approaches, the majority are still focused on delivering sheer packet volume to take down servers.
