"This attack was launched from a botnet of approximately 6,000 unique bots. It originated from 112 countries around the world. Almost 15% of the attack traffic originated from Indonesia, followed by Russia, Brazil, India, Colombia, and the United States."

Cloudflare went on adding that the attack originated from over 1,300 different networks, with the top networks including the German provider Hetzner Online GmbH. The attack comes a month after HubSpot, a cloud-based CRM designed platform, suffered an unauthorized access from a bad actor who succeeded to compromise a HubSpot employee account.
