Internet & Networking "The New York Times this morning published a story about the Spamhaus DDoS attack and how CloudFlare helped mitigate it and keep the site online. The Times calls the attack the largest known DDoS attack ever on the Internet. We wrote about the attack last week. At the time, it was a large attack, sending 85Gbps of traffic. Since then, the attack got much worse. Here are some of the technical details of what we've seen."

"Broke the internet"? what a bullsh*t.

How could you even brake the internet, when it was designed and created just so it would not break in such situations? de-centralisation and many routes.

Please, don't spread the nonsense. It could possibly block some popular sites, but NOT "break" the internet.

And if you claim it had a potential to "break" the internet, then I claim I have all of the internet written into my floppy disk ...
