Kryptic DayZ vs 940 Gbps DDoS: Case Study



Our client, Kryptic DayZ, recently faced a massive DDoS attack exceeding 940 Gigabits per second. In this blog post, we’ll explore how VYKIX’s DDoS protection was vital in safeguarding Kryptic DayZ.

The DayZ-Specific DDoS Attack

This particular DDoS attack proved highly insidious, capable of evading most existing DDoS protection methods. It disguised itself as “player” packets intending to crash the DayZ server. Consequently, the attack resulted in soaring CPU usage, reduced frames per second (FPS) to zero, server crashes, and the potential for database corruption.

Mitigating the DDoS Attack

Our network’s swift response to the DDoS attack harnessed our global edge servers, utilizing Anycast technology. Our Layer 4/7 Application filters effectively intercepted the initial 745 Gigabits per second TCP attack and the subsequent 931 Gigabits per second UDP attack.
