Last week, on Friday many of the “most popular” internet sites were down for quite some following a “suspected” cyber-attack on them, whereby “disabling web technology provider Dyn” in turn.
 
Among the affected firms caused by the above mentioned “outrage”, the names of “Twitter, Spotify, Tumblr and SoundCloud” are also included, reported Dy.
 
However, Dyn, the “internet management firm”, also informed that the problem was resolved by “9:20am ET” on Friday, the 21st of October 2016.

During DDos attacks large computer networks are used for overloading “sites with junk traffic”.
