Jim Louderback has a very nice write-up of a Denial of Service his company suffered during the holiday weekend: Revision3's Denial of Service. Snippet:
Although I can only guess, hereâ€™s what I think really happened. Media Defender was abusing one of Revision3â€™s servers for their own purposes â€“ quite without our approval. When we closed off their backdoor access, MediaDefenderâ€™s servers freaked out, and went into attack mode â€“ much like how a petulant toddler will throw an epic tantrum if you take away an ill-gotten Oreo.
(I love the toddler theme running through the story.)
Non-technical stuff going on with EricRi in the Northwest.
