Wonder Why Half The Internet Is Down Today? Blame It On The DDoS Attack!

Today seemed like any old normal day here at The DigiSpot… until 12pm!!! Around 12pm today, I noticed a few strange events on just this website & I had no idea why whatsoever.

After doing some looking around, I have found that some major sites were taken down by a DDoS attack (two DDoS attacks as a matter of fact). Now while The DigiSpot has been able to dodge said attacks (as of this writing), we (as well as you) have been affected by this in more ways than one.

Now how has this epidemic affected us (or even you, at that matter) you ask? Here’s how:

  • We haven’t been able to post much material on here today thanks to sites like SoundCloud being taken down by this attack
  • With sites like Twitter down for the count, we haven’t able to bring in much traffic today
  • Even if we could bring in traffic up the ass, there won’t be much revenue brought in today thanks sites like PayPal going down.

So how are we dealing with this you wonder? At this moment, all we can do is make the best of this by doing what we can for the rest of the day.

We will keep you posted as we continue to receive updates on this issue. We hope everybody else (wherever they are in the world) enjoys the rest of their day.
