Brian Krebs, who covers security news, says distributed denial of service attacks have increased “thanks largely to the broad availability of tools for compromising and leveraging the collective firepower of so-called Internet of Things devices.” Krebs notes that today’s attacks on Dyn – which impacted Twitter, Spotify, Reddit and others – came just hours after a company researcher presented a talk in Dallas on #DDoS attacks. Krebs himself was hit by a major DDoS attack last month that was so large it caused Akamai to kick his blog off their network due to approximately 665 Gigabits of traffic per second

Flashpoint Researchers: Security intelligence firm Flashpoint’s researchers report they have observed a Mirai botnet attacking Dyn. Forbes reports this botnet consists of thousands of Internet-connected devices such as DVRs and cameras, which are vulnerable to simple hacks. Dyn told CNBC that the “Internet of Things” devices are one source of the ongoing attacks, which have been occurring for about nine hours. http://bit.ly/2eoVwCt

In a tweet, WikiLeaks urged supporters to “stop taking down the US internet,” saying Julian Assange is still alive and the organization is still publishing.
#WikiLeaks has been publishing emails connected to Hillary Clinton campaign, and U.S. officials believe Russia is tied to the hack. Officials have not said who is responsible for Friday’s attacks on Dyn’s DNS infrastructure, which is causing widespread disruption. However, an intelligence official told NBC News it is unlikely these are state sponsored attacks. http://bit.ly/2ep4hwd

` Ukranian Hackers claim responsibility for the `Cyber-Attacks ' that brought down a number of ` NATO ' Websites

#AceSecurityNews Ukrainian hackers have claimed the responsibility for cyber-attacks that brought down several NATO websites on Saturday.

The hacktivist group, Cyber Berkut, says the attacks on NATO’s primary website and its cyber defence centre website were carried in retaliation for NATO’s role in increasing tensions in Ukraine.

The group also says that NATO’s Parliamentary Assembly was also down due to a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. Last week, the group claimed responsibility for attacking some 40 Russian sites.
