Major DDoS attack on Dyn DNS knocks Spotify, Twitter, Github, PayPal, and more offline




http://www.pcworld.com/article/3133847/internet/ddos-attack-on-dyn-knocks-spotify-twitter-github-etsy-and-more-offline.html

Quote :Update 3: A DownDetector.com heat map purportedly showing backbone internet provider Level 3’s East Coast outages was removed from this piece at 2:50 p.m. Eastern, as a Level 3 spokesperson says its network “was operating normally this morning, and [the company] did not see an East Coast outage.” This is Dyn’s problem. As of 3:45 P.M. Eastern, the company reports its engineers are still working to mitigate the issue.
Update 2: Dyn says it was hit with another DDoS attack at 11:52 A.M. Eastern. Currently, Twitter, Etsy, Spotify and the other sites affected by the earlier attack are offline from my location in the Northeast U.S. The outages have spread to other parts of the United States and apparently Europe at this point.
Quote :Update: Dyn says services were restored at 9:36 A.M. Eastern time, and I can now connect to the affected websites again—which indicates the two events were indeed related. Every morning, I sit down at my PC with a cup of coffee, crank some tunes on Spotify, and scour r/techsupportgore for gnarly PC disaster pics to tweet out. Not this morning, because it appears a massive Distributed Denial of Service attack targeting DNS host Dyn has knocked a big chunk of the Internet offline Friday morning.
The Domain Name System (DNS) converts human-readable URLs (like “pcworld.com”) to their underlying numeric IP addresses. Dyn hasn’t confirmed that the outages and its DDoS attack are related, but it seems likely.

Mass internet disruption caused by DDoS attack on DNS company Dyn (update)

http://venturebeat.com/2016/10/21/dyn-dyn-dyn-internet-ddos-attack-back-up/

A major cyberattack affected hundreds of websites today, including the New York Times, Reddit, Twitter, Spotify, and eBay.
The attack actually centered on Dyn, a New Hampshire-based company that offers a platform to optimize websites’ online performance. This includes monitoring and controlling applications and infrastructure with data and analytics to reroute traffic and ensure end-users aren’t impacted by slow response times.
Dyn’s DNS service acts as a bridge between human-readable domain names and IP addresses that the internet is able to understand, and it was customers of this managed DNS service that were impacted. The distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) — an attack where the target is overwhelmed with a deluge of data to cause the network to crash — was felt mainly on the U.S. East Coast from around 11 a.m. UTC (5 a.m. ET), though Dyn reports that service was restored as of 13:20 UTC (07:20 a.m. ET).
DDoS attacks have seen a notable increase in recent times, with reports indicating a rise of 125 percent between 2015 and 2016. Game developer Blizzard has experienced a spate of DDoS attacks in recent months, causing widespread disruption for fans of World of Warcraft, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and Overwatch.
Founded in 1998, Dyn claims that “eight of the top 10 internet services / retail companies in the Fortune 500” use its services, and it raised a chunky $50 million round earlier this year, taking its total funding to around $100 million.


Update as of 10:29 a.m. Pacific on Friday: A second round attack has hit Dyn, once again affecting a bunch of internet services.
Update as of 11:33 a.m. Pacific on Friday: Other services where users have reported being affected by this attack include the App Store, Pinterest, Box, PayPal, SoundCloud, Shopify, Intercom, Github, and Etsy. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is looking into this event and told CBS News it is “investigating all potential causes”.
