Was anyone else affected by the cyber attack this morning? Apparently a massive cyber attack took our netflix, twitter, and paypal. Twitter is still not accessible on the internet here.


How about anyone else?

I haven't had any problems. Maybe you should call your ISP.

A DNS attack isn't quite the same as shutting down internet access.

An article on the outage: http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/21/technology/ddos-attack-popular-sites/index.html?iid=hp-toplead-dom

Haven't noticed any interruptions, though that would explain the dead twitter links when I was looking something up earlier.

twitter ?

i guess people are getting tired of their pro-clinton practice

you can making death threats against other candidates and show nudity on the site..

but if it's anything related to Clinton.. prepare to be banned from the site

So thats why i couldnt watch Crunchyroll on PS3 today?. Maybe someone out there have a huge dislike of internet in general. Who knows?

It was a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack and only affected a few services. This usually happens to WoW. I had no issues with one of the services mentioned in the attack though.

Yeah I know I read articles on it to investigate what happened well right after this lol. I guess my internet provider was affected but fixed it within 1-2 minutes lol. Guess internet providers are supposed ot have back up stuff and plans for stuff like this lol.

Um...no?

Been Tweeting all afternoon (yeah, I know, had to start doing it for work...), and haven't noticed anything.
Eh, must be those Putin cyber-terrorists on our doorstep again, sheesh, they're like raccoons in the dumpster.
