Denial of Service Attacks
Posted on November 1, 2012
The hosting company providing the website for KDX Radio has not allowed me to post new Low Power Hours ever since Storm Sandy, so naturally I’ve supposed that the storm messed up some servers. But it may be something different.
Today I finally gave the provider a call and they report an ongoing problem with DDOS attacks, some kind of hacker intrusion that causes “denial of service”.
I am pleased that my provider is the one who is trying to repair the problem, which is better than me having to solve some difficulty at my end.
What kind of people would spend their time messing with legitimate websites? I’ll start a list, then maybe you have some suggestions….
People Who Would Cause DDOS Attacks
– disgruntled former employees;
– inside saboteurs;
– angry former customers;
– the cyber attack division of homesick security;
– beer drinkers in dorm rooms;
Any other thoughts?
