Please go back, read and comprehend.

"At that point, GitHub turned to Akamai to filter out the malicious traffic, ending the attack's effect after five or so minutes."

The attack, for those that think otherwise lasted longer than 5 minutes, but thanks to a CDN (Cloudflare are another one), the EFFECTS were stopped, not the attack.
