This question already has an answer here:
- I am under DDoS. What can I do? 3 answers
I recently have been getting hit by an attack that is very small around 70MBPS but causes TONS of upload...All signs point to ICMP. I realized in my firewall I have CSF firewall running on CentOS, that I had no limit on my outgoing ICMP rate...Woops. :P
Anything else I should block? We are primarily game servers so obviously blocking all incoming ICMP traffic is a no no. Or is it? That's why I'm here :D
Thanks for any tips,
**Also quick edit, we are on a 100MBPS port and the current firewall is able to block generic DDoS attacks excess of 600MB without breaking a sweat.
