DDoS attack caused by xbox live players?
We have experienced some ddos attacks over the last few weeks, a couple of them were large enough to actually be service impacting by using up all of our available bandwidth to our providers. I have managed to gather data on what a couple of the attacked IPs were doing prior to the attacks, they were using xbox live. There is actually an faq on the xbox live site for ddos attacks:********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
I wouldn't call my evidence 100% concrete, but I have a pretty good feeling that this may be what happened to us.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how did you deal with it?
btw, cross posting to a couple of listservs, sorry if I "spam" anyone.
