Widespread DDoS attacks against Iranian Resistance websites

Following a major disruption in the Iranian regime’s state-run broadcasting networks, Tehran has been on a drive to bring down the websites of the Iranian Resistance.

The regime is engaging in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, in which the target website is hit with a large flood of fake requests in order to flood and overload the servers.

The first attack began on Thursday night, January 27, at 17:50 Tehran time, followed by two other attacks in the following hours, and the fourth wave on January 28.

The attacks, which were all thwarted, peaked at 2.2 million requests per second (RPS) on January 28. A fifth and sixth waves of DDoS attacks followed by January 31.
