DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 21, 2016, 10:54 PM (IDT)
A DDOS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) cyber attack Friday hit the Dyn Company, one of the largest regional server services in the region. The sites that crashed included Twitter, Spotify, PayPal, Reddit and The New York Times. The first attack ended after an hour-and-a-half. Two hours later, a second cyber attack struck many Internet sites on the Western Coast.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
