Things are starting to fall into place now.
I'm a web developer by trade and recently there has been a concerted attack against wordpress sites.
(wordpress powers upwards of 30% of ALL sites on the net).
I can speak from personal experience, ALL my clients sites have been receiving upwards of 150 attacks per day.
Here a quick article to get you up to speed. www.zdnet.com...
The difference between these attacks and the normal run of the mill ddos attacks where some poor soul downloads some malware that will then
participate in a ddos attack is AVAILABLE BANDWIDTH.
The average person sitting at home with their personal computer doesn't really have access to much in the way of bandwidth, web servers DO.
So by extrapolation if you wanted to create probably the largest ddos attack ever seen on the internet you need to have access to WEB SERVERS in a
coordinated attack, their pipelines are HUGE!
Eyes open people.
