I guess it's the KNC miners coming online. Most of them will leave as soon as they notice that the current round is 5+ hours (so far).

The pool is 7-8% from the network, which is on average 0.45 blocks per hour or 2h 20min per block ... the rest is luck (good or bad)

Well, here comes the luck again. I left the pool at 105% and during the DDoS attacks I mined myself  Cool. I returned at 18:50 today.  Grin

May the luck serve us through a bright future.

Overall, will there be a stable value in not too far future (2015) say at 10 times the diff, so Slush can use an optimistic forecast?

And is there anything like we can do against DDoS, like paying them back with defcoins? Is there anywhere any info about who or what performed the attacks?

Posession of bitcoins and bitcoin mining is legal in Germany. Use and posession of my bitcoins is according to law, applicable legal framework and principles of UN Global Compact. Place of origin of my bitcoins and my mining equipment is Germany. They are part of my property. Access to this property is absolutely forbidden to non-residents of my household. To avoid ambiguity, I have never and will never grant access on any basis other than stipulated by German law and to be executed by German authorities only. Any act, willful or unwillfull, in awareness or unaware of aforementioned statements, by any person or organization that hampers my ability to anonymously use or mine my bitcoins in any form, will be treated according to German laws. Place of Court will be Germany.

If they haven't already, take a look at HAProxy to fight against those nasty DDoS attacks.  http://haproxy.1wt.eu/  It's a small VM footprint, very expandable and can handle a lot of traffic. 

Tin Foil Hat Moment:  I wonder if these attacks are contracted out.  X pool buys attacks against some of the larger pools so they can solve more blocks while they are down.  Some major hashing hardware is currently shipping now.

Use Varnish, an HTTP accelerator. I use it on my Drupal sites. Haters can try DDoS all day and it doesn't matter. The webpages are cached and served from RAM, not disk. I forget the insane pages per second it can serve, but it's top notch. For example, Lullabot, a Drupal shop that runs the Grammy.com website for the night of the Grammys, use Varnish on it. It can handle insane traffic.

Why is moar hash good?

Saying actually goes "If Your in a Hole, Stop Digging" but seemingly miners think "This will become a tunnel"
Once the Terahashers are out you could stuff your equipment into the dustbin.

Thanks for the comments. Solutions so far describe how the pool survives without going down. The solutions offered describe that if the speed of the servers is higher than any load generated from the internet the server will stay in operation. So one target of the DDoS is not achieved, Server remains operable. Nice for the pool.

My problem with the DDoS is that they seemingly generate enough traffic so that my hashes do not get to the pool server properly. This target of the DDoS, or better Traffic Jamming, i. e. no communication with the server - is partially reached. Bad for me.

So I was looking for a solution of getting rid of the traffic jammers without having to go to a private pool. It is possible for the infrastructure providers to significantly throttle and black-list traffic offenders.

Posession of bitcoins and bitcoin mining is legal in Germany. Use and posession of my bitcoins is according to law, applicable legal framework and principles of UN Global Compact.

Depends a lot on the equipment.  My Bitfury gear should be good up to diff 50 billion.  And most of us will still be running those little blinky USB Block Erupters, regardless of the difficulty, just because they're so cute...

Gold can still come out of a tunnel.
While they continue to return against the power cost, then they are always viable.
I still keep my GPU kit in the cupboard, If the btc exchange rate goes up then they may still hash again.

Some users are still hashing with GPU, (like the cute little erupters), because they just want to.
