Google, Amazon, and Cloudflare reported the largest-ever DDoS attacks in August due to a newfound vulnerability, known as CVE-2023-44487, in the HTTP/2 protocol. The attacks overwhelmed websites with an HTTP/2 Rapid Reset Attack, making them temporarily unavailable. Google mitigated an attack with 398 million requests per second, while Amazon and Cloudflare saw peaks of 155 million and 201 million requests per second, respectively. While minimal impact occurred, all three companies implemented additional protections and urged providers to apply security patches. This new DDoS vector is a significant concern as HTTP/2 is integral to about 60% of web applications, affecting users’ website experience.
