GitHub has been hit by another distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack. Since the attack has been bigger than previous ones, the code repository has decided to share some details about it and the companys mitigation strategies.
As most GitHub users will tell you, DDOS attacks against the service are highly common. In fact, theyre so common that GitHub has become pretty good at mitigating them. It usually takes 20 minutes to restore access to the service.
