Attack by google.?

Recommended Posts

Last week began the week with a problem of slowness evident in the Web platform, the strange thing of all this is that only the loading of the pages (the whole site) was very slow, the database with arta load of memory use .

As a side effect, the automatic tasks started to fail, they did not run and it had a huge list of outstanding background processes.

The identification of the problem led me to query the table ibf_core_search_index, but very often. the amount of online user was in normal parameters.

| 44464 | xxxxx | localhost | xxxxx | Prepare | 511 | Waiting for table metadata lock | / * IPS \ Content \ Search \ Mysql \ _Query :: filterForProfile: 240 * / SELECT COUNT (*) FROM ibf_core_search_index |

After three days of research, I detected 4 GOOGLE IP addresses that were generating more than 300 requests per second on the web, clearly affecting the performance.

Action: block the addresses in the firewall and report to google for your internal investigation. # google, generates many comexiones - Fri Apr 26 02:43:16 2019

I share my experience for the community.

What is the point/goal of the abuse? What are they trying to do? Just trying to understand ...

Generally they are malicious scrapers or the likes. Bots that try and clone content from websites on other random domains for ad revenue and things like that.

That or some lower scale DDoS attacks can originate from cloud services like this sometimes.
