Wondering why your streaming was weak or your Twitter Account wouldn’t load? Well you were not alone.  According To Dyn’s website where they issued this statement:

“Starting at 11:10 UTC on October 21th-Friday 2016 we began monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure. Some customers may experience increased DNS query latency and delayed zone propagation during this time.

 This attack is mainly impacting US East and is impacting Managed DNS customer in this region. Our Engineers are continuing to work on mitigating this issue.”

A DDoS attack is basically just swarming a server with multiple sources of traffic.  Think of it as Blitzkreig, or a full on blitz where the offensive line just forgets to block.
