Recent attacks show that attackers are using new techniques known as multi vulnerability attack campaigns. During this the attackers set the Botnet (or instruct their fans, as in the case of Anonymous group operations) to launch several attack types in parallel, targeting multiple vulnerability points of the victim’s IT infrastructure such as the network, servers and the application layers

Just to be clear, during most DDOS attacks, most of the "attackers" are people that downloaded the wrong torrent or came across the wrong malware ad and got infected, just naive people when it comes to computer security. There are some idiots in there that are infecting their PC on purpose on command of say an anonymous faction, but all the infected computers out there are a good smoke screen for plausible denial. No real way to tell the victims from the active participants really.

ok, so we're having that timeout problem again, where if you wait more than 5 seconds to hit the post button, it times out, and you lose your post....this is also occurring for starting threads (i know this, because this is my 3rd attempt to start this thread)
