Major websites like Twitter, Paypal, Spotify, Reddit, and many more were down today. It looks like the cause of this was hackers unleashing a large denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It seems this DNS attach affected the United States and Europe mostly. While many people have reported that the sites are coming back up now, it seems there are more attacks happening.
