#1> You can't delete a page from the internet for "good" its impossible they'll just re-host it... even if you delete the main content there's
always backup servers and for security purpose where I work we keep one shutdown all the time but fully backed up in case the main ones are
compromised we backup from this one...
#2> Deleting the page will results in having the techs they already pay to put it up and maintain it anyways to fix it.... DDOS cost ENORMOUS amounts
of money to the attacked party... Gotta pay the junk bandwith, security team to ensure that the DDOS wasn't a curve ball while they were getting in
from behind... Gotta setup backup routing and networks and multitude of stuff that can be very very expensive...
#3> It could of been a diversion to test the currently implemented infrastructure just to fuzz it a little and see how it reacts... Also its not rare
to see simultaneous DDOS attack awhile a penetration attempt is made as your "attack" data gets hidden through the junk data making it a pain to
find... This bundled with a non too aggressive attack that isn't set to hammer the # out the the servers but to poke it gently and slowly should be a
real pain to analyze...
This DDOS attempt could of been a cover so they could gather enough info to find a way in... It could be probable... If you can't find a way in you
promise them you will get in on a date... on that date you poke around a bit and check out how their firewalls react and analyze the data that you
could normally find during an actual attack... You know they will buff their security and staff on that date... when the date pass you wait a
little... let them boost their ego thinking they were too good to be taken down... then as soon as their pride blinds them "Boom goes the Dynamite"
Yes the above was a quote from "Breaking In" I love this darn show lol
Its like shark does when they go take a test bite to see if its actual food
