RIAA-site onbereikbaar door DoS-attack

Posted on Tuesday, July 30 2002 @ 10:47:05 CEST by

De site van de RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), de Amerikaanse organisatie die opkomt voor de rechten van de artiesten, lag van vrijdag tot maandag plat wegens een DoS-attack.

DoS-attacks or denial-of-service attacks overwhelm an Internet site by enlisting hundreds or thousands of other machines that attempt to make simultaneous connections. The resulting overload resembles a physical traffic jam: Few people can get through.

Dit na dat ze onder andere een wetvoorstel hadden ingediend waarin staat dat media-bedrijven netwerken zoals KaZaA zouden mogen saboteren door onder anderen, ja DoS-attacks.

Ook werd er een wetvoorstel opgesteld zodat de Amerikaanse muziekindustrie legaal zou mogen hacken. Dit om op pc's illigale muziek en film weg te kunnen halen zonder vervolgd te kunnen worden voor enige opgelopen schade.

"Don't they have something better to do during the summer than hack our site?" asked the RIAA representative, who asked not to be identified. "Perhaps it at least took 10 minutes away from stealing music."

The RIAA, which receives connectivity through WorldCom's UUNet subsidiary, said it would not speculate about the reason for the attack. A representative said it appears to have been the first time the group's site had been knocked offline.
Tjah , zouden ze nu echt geen idee hebben omtrent de reden van de aanval?
