A new definition of DDOS

10/08/2016 — 3 Comments

Apparently 2 million Australians trying to use the one ABS website because they’re convinced the government will fine them if they don’t is the freshly minted definition of “Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS)” attack. 🙂

Alternative theory, who would have thought that foreign nationals (oh all right, we all know it’s the Chinese*) might try to disrupt the census in revenge for those drug cheat comments at the Olympics?

Interesting times. I hope the AEC is taking notes for their next go at electronic voting
