How to protect your Minecraft servers against UDP and TCP floods

Multi-terabit massive DDoS attacks have become increasingly frequent. The largest attack to happen lately occurred in October. It was a 2.5 Tbps DDoS attack against the Minecraft server, Wynncraft. Once again, it was launched by a Mirai botnet. The multi-vector attack’s malicious traffic was composed of UDP and TCP packets. The attack lasted for about two minutes.

Such attacks ruin the gaming experience: users get disconnected while playing or can’t open their favorite game. To cover the community from this threat, we created a specialized solution to protect Minecraft gaming servers.
