I don't think it was a ddos. I think it was everyone frantically trying to buy/sell/craft globes since this time valve said they were going away.

And valve's front end setup couldn't handle it.

Did you look at any of the links at all? 2 groups were DDOSing Origin,, Steam among others. See the Twitter feeds linked in the stories.



People can claim things that don't happen. Just because they claimed it, isn't proof a ddos attach hit steam.

Interesting. Any links? I'd like to read up on it.

I guess that answers my question in my previous didn't read anything. You didn't read the links in the story Blue posted above, and you didn't read any links earlier in the thread.
As for it being used to make money...I haven't heard anything like that, but who knows.

I was specifically asking for links to making money, the links about the twitter users are above of course.
