CMS grad student Molly Sauter!
Molly spoke at HOPE Number 9, a long-running hacker conference:
DDOS as a tool cannot be wholly condemn or lauded without its surrounding context.
In this talk, I’ll be examining those previous characterizations, and at different DDOS campaigns that do and do not fit those models. Next I’ll be outlining the current state of play of activist DDOS. Finally I’ll be presenting a new analytical model for looking at activist DDOS campaigns, and presenting an analysis of the December 2010 Operation PayBack DDOS campaign against PayPal.
