Cybersecurity Expert and Journalist Brian Krebs’ Experience with Hacking Warns Us of the Dangers of Cyberattacks in the form of DDoS

The website of cybersecurity journalist and expert, Brian Krebs, was attacked with a DDoS, or “distributed denial of service,” about a week ago, preventing him from accessing the internet for several days.  This should warn us that cyberattacks are no longer only the province of “state actors,” but also private individuals.  The number of DDoS attacks increased by about 75% in 2016 when compared to last year’s attacks.
