‘Blizzard Entertainment Hit With Weekend DDoS Attack’, ‘World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone and other games hit by DDoS’ and ‘Kids these days: the 16-year-old behind 1.7 million DDoS attacks’ are just three of the headlines about DDoS attacks in August, I didn’t open the other 19,000 results.
