Postby Avereeni » 21 Oct 2016, 21:26

a major ddos attack hit america, targeted one of its biggest dns providers, and now many sites are suffering. pretty much prone to being shut down entirely.

Cyber Terrorism will be a thing very soon, I imagine...or has it already become a reality? Only time can tell. As far as I know, ROBLOX was hit with a DDoS, surprisingly their forums aren't full of conspiracies about who conducted the attack to begin with.
Everything good will come to an end one day. Make sure that if your end is coming, leave behind something you can be proud of.

I'm afraid it is already a thing, they have safeguards for Nuclear power stations where there are entirely internal systems with no "internet" connection to the rest of the word for this sole reason. And nuclear defence systems aren't fully electronic, they have safeguards and fail-safes that are mechanical/manual and not just button or key turning systems.
I mean why target individual people, when you can effectively target almost everyone? Investment into this area continues to rise year on year as our world becomes increasingly more electronic.
