This Week in Review is dripping with sweet, sciencey goodness. First we look at a cyber war raging across Western Europe. Then, Google goes on vacation in a radioactive hotspot and shares their pictures, and we also look at some exciting news from the edge of the solar system.
A major internet war, the largest one to date so far, is making headline news and taking no prisoners. The attack started earlier this week and is believed to be directed by Cyberbunker, a web hosting location known for hosting spam sites, towards Spamhaus, a group dedicated to fighting spam on the internet. Spam is a serious problem, as it takes up a lot of valuable space, speed, and resources while being a nuisance to users. The attack is being showcased as the largest internet attack to date. This is a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack, which means a lot of information is being directed towards Spamhaus from multiple sources. The attack is so large that internet service is being slowed to a crawl in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Western Europe. How much information is being slung around? It’s estimated that roughly 300 Gigabytes per second is traveling around and being concentrated on this one patch of Earth. To give you an idea of the scope of this attack, 300 Gigabytes is roughly 400 full length movies. Per second. That works out to be more than a million movies worth of data moving around every hour and the attack has been going on for days.
For this Week in Review we look at interesting aspects of the internet that –gasp- are not covered in cat photos! While cats still inhabit most of the internet, these are some examples of how amazing the internet really is. Then we look at penguins and responses to cyber warfare attacks, so strap yourself in and prepare your mind-brain for an informational booster shot.
