October 3, 2016: DDoS on the US Telephony Backbone

A quiet start to the week here in Dallas.  Tomorrow is Dominica and my thirteenth wedding anniversary.  Boy that is hard to believe.  How can it have been so long already?

Today was a major telecom outage in the US, one of the largest ever with a core backbone provider under a distributed denial of service attack.  So for much of the day phones were down or nearly down all over the country.

Pretty slow day of just getting work done, lots of writing and posting.  We are pretty much just hiding in Dallas and relaxing so not very much to report.  It is going to be a slow autumn around here.
