Getting all ready to Twitter away this morning which I like to do in lieu of exercise and what do you know? Twitter won’t load.
A quick Google search takes me to the Twitter status page and it informs me that they are under ‘attack’ and are ‘defending themselves. A Denial of Service Attack. I had to look that up and Wikipedia says the following:
A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person or persons to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely. Perpetrators of DoS attacks typically target sites or services hosted on high-profile web servers such as banks, credit card payment gateways, and even root nameservers.
So much activity – I’m exhausted.
Have a great day everyone!
