Denial of Service Attack Update

RM issued the following update on 27/01/2016 at 17:17 GMT
Today’s DDoS was against a school in Leeds. It was 7Gbps, so not the largest, but in addition the packet count was very high at over 600,000 packets per second which can cause performance issues for users. As usual we quickly assessed the issue and instigated our DDoS protection. In this instant the total duration of the attack was only 5 minutes, but we continued to divert our traffic through our DDoS filtering technology to avoid any impact of a repeat attack
