According to SANS, the first Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack was in 1999, more than 20 years ago.  Since then, DDOS attacks have become bigger and more frequent.  Today, a DDOS mitigation strategy is an essential part of any high-profile site’s hosting strategy.  These attacks often occur frequently in the gaming community and with any site hosting anything remotely controversial.

Have you encountered a DDOS attack?  What was the impact?  How was it resolved?  Please participate in our survey below and we’ll post a wrap-up with all the results to see how DDOS attacks are impacting the LEB community.
