Please define random :)
If you mean the source is random, then yes this attack is of a high
magnitude and I've seen one other this bad.
The addresses could be real, or spoofed - depending on the circumstance
and exact nature of the attack it'll vary.
If you mean the target appears to be random, then you're probably just
very very unlucky :(
Attacks of this size are normally aimed at large IRC servers or large /
