A Live Map of Ongoing DDoS Attacks

I just saw yesterday an interesting Digital Attack Map

This Live Map of Ongoing DDoS Attacks is a Digital Attack Map that was produced in a collaborative effort by Google Ideas and Arbor Networks to raise awareness about distributed denial of service attacks that try to choke or shutdown websites. Typical reasons for attacks: sites covering elections are brought down to influence their outcome, media sites are attacked to censor stories, and businesses are taken offline by competitors.

The map is created using attack data from Arbor’s ‘ATLASĀ® global threat intelligence system. A Live Map of Ongoing DDoS Attacks article tells that the map “surfaces anonymous attack traffic data to let users explore historic trends and find reports of outages happening on a given day,” as its about page explains.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
