    Internet Blackout

    (you need an account to see links)

    Did anybody read about this today? I thought it was pretty interesting

    If you didn't notice it, it may have been because:
    The attack Friday mainly affected the eastern United States, Dyn said.
    Shades on spinning in a summer rain
    Dancing when there ain't no music
    Just the right kind of crazy, baby

    Careful.

    Yeap, Twitter's out, gone, for me.

    Oh my God this is sort of spooky. Nobody knows as of yet who's launched the attack??

    They are still working on figuring who initiated the attack. I haven't heard them name any names yet.
    I'm sure Hillary will say its Russia sooner or later. A pretty solid DDoS hit though!

    Blizzard servers also recently had a bunch of issues with DDoS attacks, I wonder if its all the same people.
