Powerful DDoS attack brought down Thailand Government websites
« on: October 03, 2015, 12:10:41 PM »

A powerful DDoS attack has brought down the websites of the Thai government (thaigov.go.th) and of the country?s Ministry of Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) (mict.go.th).

What differentiates this DDoS attack from any other DDoS attack is that it wasn't the work of a botnet but a result of users continuously refreshing the aforementioned Web pages, until their servers gave out.

The whole movement started as messages shared on social media among Thai citizens, as a modern way to protest against the country's current military regime, which plans to restrict Internet access by forcing all outgoing Internet connections to go through one single gateway.

Like most countries at one point in their history, Thailand used to have one single gateway which connected its population to the Internet, but local infrastructure kept developing and the country now has 10 such exit points, as the BBC reports.
