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."

This is so idiotic, I don't even know where to begin. What do these f*ckers think they will accomplish? That's right: NOTHING!

Do these losers think that just because they don't agree with a site, they are allowed to bring down the whole fucking 'net?!? To me, this is the pinnacle of selfishness. I hope these scumbags are tracked down and beaten to within an inch of their lives. >:(

The effect on the net as a whole is very localized. The problems has shown the distributed nature of the internet can shield the rest from the affected areas. Most places on earth has not seen any disruption at all from this DDoS.
But i agree, it is *rather* pointless and not very bright.
