Conservative sites have been going down ever since Obama decided to retaliate against Putin. Is Obama retaliating against American citizens like Matt Drudge?
In addition, Prntly was down for 2 hours after a DDoS attack, which has never happened at this level before.
Of course, we don’t expect the Federal Government led by Obama to read us, but we are shocked to see that Obama and his minions may be trying to shut down the sites.
DDoS, or Distributed Denial of Service, refers to a type of cyberattack involving multiple computers repeatedly trying to connect to a website’s server, thus causing the server to become overwhelmed and, in effect, denying users service. In the past, denial of service attacks have shut down major websites such as Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, Tumblr, and Reddit.
The Drudge Report outage began about 7 PM EST Thursday. The International Business Times, which was one of the first to report the outage, noted Drudge’s top headline at the time was “Moscow Mocks Obama.”
