Telegram is one if the famous messenging platform used by millions of people around the world but the telegram had faced a powerful DDos attack from china

Many people in Hong Kong are currently using Telegram's encrypted messaging service to communicate without being spied on, creating groups,organize the protest, to talk and alert each other about activities on the ground.

According to Telegram, during Hong Kong protests the company received GADZILLIONS of garbage requests which stop its servers from processing legitimate requests and the state-actor sized attack has been traced back to IP addresses in China.

Though it is evident that a DDoS attack doesn't have anything to do with the security of data stored on the targeted servers instead, aims to take a service offline, the company still confirmed that the user data is safe.
