In the wake of the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that targeted many online companies and news agencies last week such as Amazon, Netflix, CNN and The New York Times, we learned that the threat intelligence firm Flashpoint assumed the lead public relations role in the media after the event – just as they did following the highly suspicious Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando this past the summer.
Later in this report, we’ll focus our attention on the uncanny ties between the firm Flashpoint, theOrlando Shooting and the massive internet related outage this past week.
But first things first, let’s review elements of the recent DDoS attack in America…
On October 21st, the technology blog Engadget discussed the cyber attacks that led to an internet outage across America and other parts of the world:
“Today’s nation-wide internet outage was enabled thanks to a Mirai botnet that hacked into connected home devices, according to security intelligence company Flashpoint. The distributed denial of service attack targeted Dyn, a large domain name server, and took down Twitter, Spotify, Reddit, The New York Times, Pinterest, PayPal and other major websites.
