DDoS slows global Net

Nur falls sich wer wundert, dass das Netz heute etwas langsamer ist, als sonst: „The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack of its kind in history.“

Mr Linford said the attack's power would be strong enough to take down government internet infrastructure. "If you aimed this at Downing Street they would be down instantly," he said. "They would be completely off the internet."

He added: "These attacks are peaking at 300 gb/s (gigabits per second). "Normally when there are attacks against major banks, we're talking about 50 gb/s."
