So July has come and probably not soon enough for some. The number of DDoS attacks across the globe has caused disruption and possibly had direct involvement in one company going under.
The spread of the attacks was varied from extortion, disrupting sites to targeting online gaming it seems no one was safe. The true and probably more worrying thing is how easy these were to start in the first place. It seems you can rent a bot net for a few hours cause havoc and walk away, job done.
The most high profile attack was against Evernote the note taking, personal organisation service. Feedly was also targeted and if reports are correct the RSS feed service were approached for a ransom to stop the attack!
This could be the start of an influx of such attacks, so it is best to get used to it.
