Something I've always wanted to know. What's the point of a DDoS on a website?
Now I can understand a bank/credit card DDoS, that's going to cost money and potentially business, but a site like this?
I mean, I think of it like blocking the door of a building, for a while, till the people inside call for security. Once they arrive, business as usual.
I suppose it could be used as cover for a deeper attack, gaining potential information, but other than that?
Seems like an awful risk for very little reward, as it were.
