Third massive denial of service attack hits the internet

Attacks on Dyn continue

Attacks earlier today took out Twitter, Reddit, Tumbler, Netflix, Spotify and many more. The source of the attack is Dyn, which is a DNS service used by many of the biggest websites.

The company said the attack emanated from malware that's been crawling around the internet lately and infecting computers. The attack was finally sprung into action today and earlier today it began knocking out websites for as long as two hours at a time.

Our commenting section has been down at various times and in various regions today due to the attack.
