Wikileaks thinks its a revenge attack by Assange supporters. After US announced a possible cyber attack on Russia it looks like they may be hitting first. Either way, it could be worse.

yep, everything is blamed on the Russians.

Seriously - so far experts do not see Russian fingerprints on this attack. But I would bet that our government and media will keep saying it is the Russians, and they will blame it on Trump.

I wonder if our own government might be doing all of this to set up something bigger.
They blame Russia for Wikileaks.
Now they will blame the DDoS attack on them.
They are really working on brain washing everyone that the Russians are influencing the election in Trumps favor.

What if (just a theory) they are setting this up so that if Trump wins the election, they will try to say that the Russians hacked the election and then they will declare the win invalid.
Clinton's people are really worried and have been doing every dirty trick they can think of to stop Trump and his supporters.
This might be their last ditch effort because they are realizing he might actually win. (despite their manipulation of polls)

Great test for Iron DNS. Will have to do much better than this to bring the grid to a standstill.
Don't think they have the guns.

Holy s#, I can't get over how utterly ignorant some people are over the structure of the internet. Let's go ultra layman on this and briefly explain like you're 5.

I'm calling Weak Sauce on the overly-dramatized over reaction to people not understanding the structure of the internet. I got my first computer in 1986 at age 11, wrote my first Basic programs within a month, began building PCs in the mid '90s. I don't care a lick about the structure of the internet, so I never bothered to learn about the structure of the internet.

Most people don't understand how their car's steering components work, and their lives literally depend on those components. It doesn't matter if they know how it works, as long as they know how to turn the steering wheel, and where to find a mechanic if something needs to be fixed.

Good lord...

anyone claim responsibility yet? i wonder if this is in response to John Kerry manipulating the Ecuadorians to cut off assanges internet.

There really is no need to insult or demean people for not understanding things they do not need to know to get along in life. I was actually impressed that more than a few people in this thread demonstrated a fair level of understanding regarding exactly what happened in this attack.

It's helpful to share your knowledge and educate people. But you can do it in such a was to be... helpful, and not demeaning.
