Today a massive DDoS attack took out a major piece of internet infrastructure, causing huge outages across the United States and Europe. Watch it spread like a disease across the States.
I work for an ecommerce site and our sales were excruciatingly pitiful. We eventually connected 2 and 2 and realized it was probably people having difficulty accessing the internet thanks to the DDoS attack, plus PayPal being down. Thanks hackers, my company lost thousands of dollars.
