Recently most websites were ddos attacked and went out of service via dns attack.
I was just interested to see how much traffic Zimbabwe contributed. This is being traced back to the manufacturer of webcams in China. The manufacturer is recalling about 2million of its webcams. This attack is believed to have been successful because of IoT.
Zimbabwe on 22 Oct 16 contributed about 50MBps of bandwidth for almost an hour and its main target was Brazil.
This is not a surprise considering the amount of Chinese gadget we import from China.
