You might have heard “Mirai botnet” before, for a further explanation we have published an article dedicated just for this: https://bitninja.io/blog/2017/11/24/cyberstorm-from-argentina-mirai-botnet-attack

Because of the request pattern, the time gap, and a huge number of dynamic addresses, we think the backbone of this botnet mainly consists of routers and other IoT devices.  And with high probability, it was caused by a variant of Mirai botnet, because as you know, these infected devices are often captured by Telnet Port Honeypots as well.

Below you can see an example, how it looks like in real life :
