We are always trying to reply asap on peering at ovh.net if it's network
related (it's not abuse and I don't manage it ;). You're welcome to
share anything wrong so we can mitigate attack with our own antiddos
system, if automatic detection didn't catched it. 

We are obviously not responsible for the memcached issue, and we get the
