The Digital Attack Map (http://goo.gl/z61QWH) is a live data visualization, built through a collaboration between Arbor Networks and +Google Ideas, that maps “distributed denial of service” (DDoS attacks) designed to take down websites around the globe. Many websites face targeted digital attacks by people who aim to silence their speech. This tool and visualization specifically surfaces anonymous traffic data related to these attacks, letting people explore historic trends and see related news reports of outages happening on a given day.

Thanks for sharing Paul. This is good step towards being better informed about the origin of DDoS attacks and a positive effort against hackers who’s aim is to instigate slow page loads and to stop access of legitimate traffic. Tools to keep us better informed of cyber criminal activities are a good step towards stopping this from happening to credible organisations across the globe.
