Correction there's not enough bandwidth to allow customers normal traffic though and Massive DDOS attacks.
This thread has got to be the biggest rant thread I've seen in a while.......
One can only assume then that the attach is being directed at Orcon themselves as they would have taken action against the target customer by now.
Also a month long DDoS is quite a long time for a sustained attack... Must have pissed someone off real bad.
DDOS attacks have ramped up lately.... I saw 800mbit to one DSL user the other day and GGI had a few massive DDOS attacks taking out 90% of the total throughput.
Its not limited to Orcon this is a NZ wide problem, ISP's that push the bandwidth to the limits already start experncing issues with DDOS attacks. I've seen a 2gibit DDOS attack.
I would be not surprised if Orcon have somewhere between 4gbit - 5gbit of bandwidth via their transit provider and a 2gig DDOS means massive drops in speed.
My Experiences with these attacks is they last 1 - 2 hours and often 2 or 3 per night, Its not one big long DDOS attack this is why the problem only happens during peak the DDOS only appear to happen during the peak times.
So why isn't the International transit provider doing something about mitigating these "DDOS" attacks isn't that part of what they're supposed to do
