First of all I know nothing about this stuff but I made some observations and was loosely connecting the pieces.

I read on Twitter that wikileaks is under a DDOS attack which is limiting their ability to release info.

I check on the Norse Attack Map and their is a tiny little town called De Kalb Junction in New York that is getting hammered right now by Microsoft and others.

I read in another post that this De Kalb Junction may be a site for VPN or something.

Any of you pro out there care to add?

Usualy more attacks come from China, but are you sure you are reading that map right, that Microsoft is attacking Wikileaks?

Don't matter it will eventually come out if they are trying to release something. If it was going to affect how people will vote today, then they waited to long to release it anyways.

Often the heaviest attacks in the US are Norse tests.

You're right, MiddleOfTheRoad. I don't think Wiki-leaks has bad timing like the Democrats did. If they had waiting until November 4th to release Donald Trump's "puzzy grabbing" audio, that would have hurt him BADLY. But Americans have short memories in this fast moving world. Most voters have forgotten about it.

You can spoof an Ip address pretty easily , people should look into how the tcp/ip protocols are built. Now to cause real chaos then its going to require a bit more effort.

You should look into how easy it is to buy a botnet or a part of it as well.

Norse only has trackers at certain points as well which means any bunch of traffic will end up at a certain node and thus trip people.

But not from MS. The hits are definitely coming from 1 Microsoft Way , Redmond ,Wa..And via telnet. They are hammering a proxy . Why , dont ask me.
2 places in Dekalb Junction , NY

It's likely nothing more than a live conference call. Telnet conferences are often very bandwidth hoggish.

It looks like this little town get's this alot. "Its Xervant Cyber Security in De Kalb Junction, New York that they are hitting." from 6/7/2016. Ironical June 7th was the first Wikileak release Source

Too true, anything so important that it could stop Hitlery getting into the White House should have been released at least a week ago...

You should use some common sense. Microsoft isn't stupid. If that company was really DDoSing then they wouldn't make it easily searchable on the internet...

It's more than just normal, it's expected from MS on a almost daily basis. As Goth said, there is no attack here.

ETA: a DDoS attack is going to be targeting an ISP or an ISP's DNS servers and it will be executed through a botnet, or series of zombie sleeper computers, not from a known source, but one that is relatively untraceable back to the initiator.

Regretfully, yep. That's precisely it.
