A key part of the internet’s infrastructure was hit by a series of attacks in the past 24 hours, causing major services such as Netflix, Twitter, Spotify, Airbnb and news sites such as The New York Times to be inaccessible for many users.

The attacks 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 first digital assault appears to have started around 7.10am New York time on Friday in the US, and Dyn said it was resolved at roughly 9.20am. A second attack began around 11.50am, according to the company. And a third attack occurred in the afternoon.

The service that Dyn provides is called the Domain Name System or DNS. It works sort of like a phone book for the internet — translating URLs into the numerical IP addresses for the servers that actually host sites so your browser can connect to them.

The type of attacks targeting Dyn are commonly known as distributed denial of service, or DDoS attacks. The effects were intermittent and many of the details remain scarce, although the first attack primarily affected users on the East Coast, according to Dyn.

The second attack appears to be more widespread. People in many parts of the US as well as some areas in Europe and Asia are having difficulty accessing sites that rely on Dyn’s service, according to DNS testing tool TurboByte Pulse.

  5. Yes, on September 30, 2016 the Puppet Obama and the Puppet US Congress handed over charge to UN Puppeteerz. Not one word did I hear spun on the Puppets feed chain.

    In a very last ditch effort Puppet Cruz and a few other Puppetz filed a lawsuit to block but the defendant Puppeteerz instructed the Puppets who think they to are Puppateerz ….Facebook, Google, Twitter et al filed what amounts as a friend of the court letter to the Puppet federal judge who abided by the defendant Puppeteerz NWO plan and denied motion to block.

    The distraction will be taxes, even porn will be subject to taxes soon. Even more chilling is the fact that ITU had passed a treaty that provided “authority to governments to close off their citizens’ access to the global Internet” and creating “a digital Iron Curtain,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

    My take is that martial law kicks in before election and or the 22nd Ammendent to the US Constitution is repealed. Either way Obama stays in, internet is down, and we the people are out.
