I always wondered how big tech companies could fight against DDoS Attacks reaching nearly 1tbps+. From my understanding traffic can't just disappear so even if I drop all e.g udp packets via iptables (also tried ebfp)
iptables -A INPUT -p udp -j DROP the traffic coming to my server won't change and my server would still be unreachable because my port is maxed out.
So it all depends on the network capacity? DDoS attacks nowdays easily reach 300-600gbps daily this would max out an entire core router in an datacenter how do they mitigate it?? Please I need some advice.
