Who is behind the LARGEST DDoS ATTACK IN HISTORY? Was it Russia, Anonymous or China?
Since the breaking news of the largest DDoS in the history of the world, conspiracy theories have began to float around the web, mainly on social media sites. They have been widely spread around and the main ones have been regarding the people who are behind it.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for these attacks and it is highly likely that it will stay this way because they would face some hefty jail time for a cyber crime of this scale.
The main three different organisations which have been linked to these DDoS attacks are Russia, China and the group ‘Anonymous’.
Before we get into this, nothing has been confirmed regarding who is behind the huge, historical attack and this is pure speculation and opinion.
Anonymous is an online group which have millions of followers over many accounts. They were one of the first accounts to announce that the USA were under the biggest DDoS attack in history.
YouTube videos have been shared around by people claiming to be Anonymous with a statement. None of this has been confirmed by an Anonymous account though, leading us to believe it was just someone looking to hop on a trend for clout.
China has the largest source of DDoS attacks which suggests that it could have came from there. Some people are speculating that it was the government of China, others circulating that it was an organisation from China.
Russia has a similar case to China. It has been linked to both their government and organisations based there. Nothing has yet been proven so we cannot confirm whether these allegations are true or not.
Nothing has yet been confirmed regarding who is behind these attacks but as soon as something is released about it, you can be assured that you will see it here first!
