Anonymous Sudan Claims Responsibility for DDoS Attack on Cloudflare
The website of Cloudflare was downed by a DDoS attack claimed by Anonymous Sudan.
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal traffic of a targeted server, service, or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.
“Cloudflare experienced a DDoS attack that caused intermittent connectivity issues to www.cloudflare.com for a few minutes. This DDoS attack did not affect any service or product capability that Cloudflare provides, and no customers were impacted by this incident,” a spokesperson told BleepingComputer.
“Cloudflare’s website is deliberately hosted on separate infrastructure and cannot impact Cloudflare services. To be clear, our website is fully functional and up and running.”
