We have a new record for the largest DDoS attack ever detected. The new high mark is 1.3 Tbps (Terabits-per-second).

The attack took place yesterday, targeted a software development company, and was detected and mitigated by Akamai. [UPDATE: It's GitHub.]

Attackers executed the attack using a vulnerability in Memcached servers that was made public two days ago.
