Talking about Cyber War is not really unusual these days, and for today in particular, there are the conditions to say without any hesitation that one of the biggest hacker attack ever done is now striking Dyn, a really famous domain provider.

The situation is now getting even worse. Dyn is under attack and thousand of websites are down.

Amazon, Twitter, Ebay, The New York Times, Github and many more are the websites who are or have been offline for sever hours due to a group of Hacker, a well organized group.

There are many reports form Dyn, let’s see the latest one:
