Oh, that's so nice of Cloudflare--are they going to keep on hosting Russian sites which are nothing more than stolen content?

"That network handles a new DDoS attack targeting Cloudflare users every three minutes, he said, and has a total mitigation capacity of over 15Tbps"

So much for not showing your hand.

Now that a maximum bandwidth is known, the blackhat will compete to see who can take them down the quickest for the Cloudflare Trophy.

For comparison due to 15 terabits being a bit hard to imagine;

15 terabits / 8 = 1.875 terabytes a second

Or best case 1875 google gigabit fiber connections in a bot net.
