Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that targeted U.S. financial institutions this week have reached 60 Gbps, according to researchers from DDoS mitigation provider Arbor Networks. Mike Smith of Akamai Technologies says in the first wave of bank attacks, the traffic coming in was the equivalent of about 65 gigabytes per second — far stronger than previous DDoS attacks. "Even at the height of the Anonymous attacks, we saw traffic coming in from 7,000 or 8,000 people involved in attacks at any given time," he says.
