Re: [INTERNET] - What to do when you experience a DDoS attack?

said by Asawulf:

Just out of curiosity, why do you think that Cogeco seems to be a favorite target for such attacks?

I'm curious too.

I didn't suffer any more unusual traffic while on Cogeco (twice) than I did while on @home, Magma, Rogers or TSI (twice).

The nature of the internet and networks in general result in that kind of traffic, it's wholly unpredictable, and sometimes it's really bad.

That's why metering and UBB should be illegal. Just sayin'.

In my many years of utilizing Cogeco's services, both residential or business, I've never experienced the effects of any kind of attack. I've logged plenty of brute force attempts with various services but I've never noticed adverse performance on home or business networks caused by anything outside my network.

Personally, I'd rather Cogeco doesn't attempt to affect incoming traffic and leave that up to me.
