Mass cyber-attack cripples world’s biggest websites including Paypal, Twitter, Spotify
At Conservative Papers
Just weeks after Obama outsourced oversight of the internet to foreigners, a widespread cyber-attack was carried out against some of the world’s biggest websites on Friday, with users unable to access PayPal, Twitter, SoundCloud, Spotify, Wikileaks and many others for hours on end.
The attack targeted Dyn, a company that helps people connect to websites, with a huge amount of traffic in an attempt to knock the service offline, according to Dyn’s director of internet analysis, Doug Madory. The digital assault appears to have started around 7:30 a.m. ET, and Dyn said it was resolved at roughly 9:20 a.m.
