Dyn DDoS Work of Script Kiddies.

https://threatpost.com/dyn-ddos-work-of-script-kiddies-not-politically-motivated-hackers/121537/

This had skids written all over it. It has been fun to watch everyone's theories though. Russians, Iranans, Asange, China, Shadowy groups committed to destroying the US economy, and a few others.

One of the first questions to be asked when an attack happens, or when modeling a particular type of potential attack is whether or not the attack can be made by a generally clever teenager with an internet connection and a pre written script. Mirai? Definitely.

1. Makes sense.

What would Russia have to gain by shutting down Dyn for the day?

A TCP SYN attack is simple as pie. Not sophisticated at all.
