My BungeeCord is being DDOSed

  1. I have a BungeeCord that has a lot of players connected.
    Unfortuantely, a small amount of traffic is causing ALL players to time out and disconnected, which is a huge problem considering we have combat-logging penalties.

    I'm running the latest version of Waterfall, and the only plugin on the bungee is ViaVersion.
    It only takes like 10-20 of these connections for it to kick everyone, which is a HUGE problem.
    I've done a lot of googling, but I can't seem to find any fixes. I can't just block these IPs either, since it's coming from so many different unique IPs each time. What can I do to fix this? I'm pretty sure that the problem is that bungeecord was designed poorly and throws exceptions for all this stuff, which totally bogs down the CPU.

  2. They'll just tell you to go on the waterfall forums, don't expect any actual help on here.
  3. detect the real from fake traffic and null it at the router/switch on the network.
    sucks that ppl are so abusive.
  4. Hello here I leave some possible solutions
    are you using iptables rules?
    I recommend this guide
    are you using any antibot plugin?
    I recommend one of these two you choose
    Anti crash
    I can also recommend this bungeecord called FlameCord
    is blocking most new exploits for bungeecord
    In which company do you have your server?
