    Any word on where these originated? When I saw Aria was hit at first I thought it was a (cray-cray) disgruntled customer.....but then seeing how most of the UK's big players were hit that theory was shot. :/

    On a serious note, was it targeted at specific retailers or just a datacentre? Wouldn't think Scan would need an entire DC so it might just have been caught up in the crossfire.

    I guess because I can't access the forum that you are still under attack....

    Re: The challenges of Internet retailing - DDoS attacks

    I noticed that Scan had another outage yesterday, whilst I could reach the home page, when viewing sub pages, I was getting a cloudflare error message saying server not responding. Also OCuK was out for a large amount of time, they suffered a complete outage, however no words on their forums at all, it was up again mid afternoon. Not good to be on the receiving end of these DDOS, let along then being held to ransom.

    Competition can be fierce between retailers, but I doubt they would stoop that low personally.

    Abuse of the word "hackers" in that article. No technical knowledge required to DDoS someone, these days it seems to be a script kiddie act that is easily outsourced making the attacker just an extortionist thug.

    Re: The challenges of Internet retailing - DDoS attacks

    Wonder if they are connected to the Talk Talk attack and data breach?

    Just what I was thinking. Sounds like the attackers are trying a number of sites to bring down and Talk Talk have simply been weaker.
