The Dyn cyberattack, one year later | Salted Hash Ep 11
It's been one year since the Dyn cyberattack, a distributed denial-of-service attack that affected traffic to a number of high-level domains. Host Steve Ragan talks with Josh Shaul, vice president of web security at Akamai Technologies, about the event's impact.
The distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) incident affected users in most of the East Coast of the United States as well as data centers in Texas, Washington, and California. According to statements from Dyn, tens of millions of IP addresses hit its infrastructure.
