Navigating Recent Challenges: BitChute Faces Escalating DDoS Attacks


In our ongoing journey since launch, BitChute has encountered its fair share of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. However, the past week brought an escalation in the severity of these attacks, prompting us to share a brief update on the situation.

Gratitude to Cloudflare

Despite the challenges, BitChute has held up admirably well, and credit is due in no small part to the exceptional service provided by Cloudflare. Their robust DDoS mitigation has been instrumental in maintaining the stability of our platform.

The Connection to Rumble Attack

We suspect a connection between the recent surge in attacks and a similar incident targeting Rumble earlier this week. The timing and modus operandi suggest a coordinated effort by the same group, raising questions about their motives and emphasizing the need for a unified response from the online community.

Unusual Geographical Origins

What makes these recent attacks stand out is the unexpected shift in geographical origins. Unlike prior incidents stemming from Asia, a significant portion now originates from US IP addresses. This departure from the norm adds a layer of complexity to our ongoing efforts to mitigate these threats. 

Cloud Infrastructure Involvement

Further complicating matters is the involvement of cloud infrastructure from prominent providers like AWS, Google, and Microsoft Azure. While this could signify attackers exploiting compromised cloud servers, it also raises concerns about the potential misuse of reputable platforms for malicious intent.


As we navigate through these challenges, we want to assure our community that we are actively addressing the situation. We appreciate your understanding if you've noticed minor disruptions. Stay tuned for updates as we work to reinforce the security measures of BitChute and ensure a resilient space for our valued content creators. Thank you for your continued support.
