Spamhaus DDoS in the News

Spamhaus sure seems to be in the news a lot lately. Or at least, I'm mentioning them on my blog an awful lot lately.

The latest coverage concerns a rather large DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack against Spamhaus, which effectively pushed bits of their infrastructure offline for a time, as the internet connections linking to this infrastructure were flooded with garbage traffic.

That Wasn’t Funny

I’m married to a feminist. My wife, Kate Harding, knows a thing or two about rape culture, bad guys and misogyny. (In fact, she’s the author of “Asking For It” forthcoming from Da Capo Press in Fall 2013.)
