The civic referendum on the election mechanism of the Chief Executive of Hong Kong has begun around noon time today on 20 of June. The voting system has been under massive DDoS attacks since June 14 and now it relies on Cloudflare to defend the platform. Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince updated the situation in Twitter, the attack scale is up to 300Gb per second.
Battling 300Gbps+ attack right now. Knew it was coming so well prepared. Helluva story someday. pic.twitter.com/YJW9u5TBoL

Were thinking of opening @CloudFlare 's Asian office in Singapore. After all the love tonight, thinking maybe Hong Kong instead.
