Cyber attack that is. This isn't the first time either. Attacks have been taking place since at least 2014 targeting the winning Poker Network (America's Cardroom, True Poker, Ya Poker, Black Chip Poker, PokerHost, and other skins).

They target a wide variety of important resources, from banks to news websites, and present a major challenge to making sure people can publish and access important information.

They are nasty. The "Internet of Things" is terribly insecure, as are most PCs and cell phones. They can be used, without the owner's knowledge, to attack websites via malware installed on the devices. Millions of these devices can be harnessed at a time to attack and overwhelm the servers of legitimate businesses, in effect, shutting them down.
