Team,

What happen to Malaysia Today (MT) website get my interest to know
more about handling this kind of attacks and what can be by us system
administrator and developers in protecting our websites. Its can
happen to any website.

Im against DDOS that can cripple any websites including government
websites, business and ordinary people. DDOS also shows our computer
users still not updating their operating system to protect from trojan
or DDOS bot. Lack of awareness and knowledge I believe. Im looking
into this DDOS attack of MT in big picture.... If they can attack MT
they also can attack our Internet infra and cripple our country
network. Our banking systems now in question, can they protect
themself?
