DDoS attack on major websites!

MOZ, MailChimp, 2 of the biggest service providers on the internet are down due to a DDoS attack! (DDoS = Distributed Denial of Service) which basically is the equivalent of a drone attack on a website. Moz recently faced a DDoS attack last month too!

What is safe these days?

DDoS is basically targeting a host server so aggressively that it becomes extremely slow & cannot serve its legitimate users.

Update 18 May 2014 : It took a few hours, but Thankfully, the attacks have been mitigated.
