Killcastro survived over 500,000 attacks – In a few hours:
A DDoS is carried out by instructing hundreds or thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of computers to send traffic to a target site or IP address.
This was a constant attack from over 500,000 PCs around the world sending requests to the ISP. Not to one particular site
The result was that you got a server busy when you tried to load Killcastro. That’s an awful lot of energy to expend to knock a few words off the internet for a mere few hours
Ya No Mas, another popular anti-Castro site disappeared yesterday, but it seems to be back up. Hopefully it wasn’t the result of a similar cyber-attack.
Yesterday, I discovered a worm on a laptop that was trying to get my login to blogger.
So, watch it kiddies, Ramiro is lurking out there in the shadows trying to tame wild colts.
