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. In late October 2016, many organizations across the internet including some of the largest Web sites disappeared after an attack was launched against Dyn, an infrastructure provider offering managed DNS services.
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.
