FCC claims it was hit by DDoS attack after John Oliver segment

Source: Gizmodo

"Last night, John Oliver told his viewers to go to the FCC via a domain they bought, gofccyourself.com, and submit comments in favor of net neutrality. It was funny. A larf. A light-hearted jape with a serious point. Even funnier: Not long after the segment aired, the FCC’s website crashed. Many believed that the Oliver segment was to blame—not an unreasonable thought, given what happened last time the British comedian covered net neutrality. But now, the FCC is claiming it was the target of multiple distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks." (05/08/17)
