Fighting Back Against DDoS Attacks

If you search for DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks online, you will be surprised at how common they have become. 2018 saw the largest DDoS attack to date on Github at 1.35Tbps; fortunately, it only affected availability of their service for around ten minutes. The Danish Railway was less fortunate when a DDoS took out their ticketing system for two days, affecting around 15,000 commuters.
