Mad Mimi Fights Back Against DDoS Attack
Mad Mimi Fights Back Against DDoS Attack: On Sunday March 30, Mad Mimi was hit with a DDoS attack by criminals attempting to extort money from us. This follows a trend of tech companies being targeted that includes Basecamp and Meetup.
A DDoS attack targets our network, essentially severing the link between our servers and the internet. Your data is safe but during the attack, it’s inaccessible. To take a great analogy from Basecamp, “This is like a bunch of people blocking the front door and not letting you into your house. The contents of your house are safe — you just can’t get in until they get out of the way.”
