Google said it had repelled a massive denial-of-service attack that the company said was the most powerful reported denial-of-service attack in history. The https attack on Google’s cloud service was a record 46 million service requests per second.

The attack quickly escalated, with the number of service requests increasing from 100,000 requests per second to 46 million requests per second in just two minutes. The attack lasted a total of 69 minutes, writes Bleeping Computer.

The June 1 attack was as much as 80 percent stronger than the previous record attack, which also occurred in June. At the time, Cloudflare said it had repelled an attack with an intensity of 26 million service requests per second.

Google illustrates the intensity of the attack by comparing the amount of traffic to Wikipedia’s web traffic. In the worst attack, Google Cloud received as many service requests in ten seconds as Wikipedia in a normal day.
