27th March – CyberBunker

The cyber-attack – dubbed by many to be the biggest in history – has caused a worldwide Web slowdown, as the battle between an anti-spam group and a Dutch web host continues to heat up.

The attack is believed to be the largest-ever distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) cyber-assault in history, and was sparked when the non-profit group Spamhaus earlier this month placed CyberBunker on its real-time blacklist of sites to be blocked for spreading spam.
