Biggest Internet Attack Yet As Cybersecurity Bill Introduced in House

Just a coincidence? Not Bloody Likely…

A huge denial of service attack occurred earlier today. It exploited a key vulnerability in the infrastructure of the internet, according to online experts, and presages things to come.

[…]The mysterious attack arrived several days after the National Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure Protection Act worked its way to the House floor. The legislation has unanimous approval of Republicans and Democrats.

HR 3696 will codify into law the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, a public-private collaboration within the Department of Homeland Security. The center will offer real-time cyberthreat information sharing across critical infrastructure sectors, according to Bank Info Security.
