Flashpoint is said to be investigating the nature of the alleged ‘hacker’ DDoS attacks against the networks of the internet traffic management company Dyn and many others just days ago.

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.

“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.
