Friday’s Massive DDoS Attack Came from Just 100,000 Hacked IoT Devices

Just 100,000 devices.

I did not miss any zeros.

Dyn disclosed on Wednesday that a botnet of an estimated 100,000 internet-connected devices was hijacked to flood its systems with unwanted requests and close down the Internet for millions of users.
