Krebs on Security booted off Akamai network after DDoS attack proves pricey

From: jim deleskie <>
Sorry but you are mistaken. I've worked at Sr. levels for several LARGE and
medium sized networks. What does it cost and what do we make doing it,
over rules what is "good for the internet" every time it came up.

"nice network you have there, shame if something were to happen to it"

one day they may be the target themselves then they can explain to
shareholders their part in enabling so much business disruption

Sadly it seems there will always be an exploding Pinto on the internet

Perhaps Akamai could present them with a bill for unwanted traffic
as they're monetising ddos they may as well charge both sides and
having dropped Krebs due to the disruption a court may agree damages



Sorry you don't understand how multinational companies and peering agreements work, nor any of the relationships my past networks would of had with akamai. But be confident in the fact none of your concerns would of been an issue and it certainly wasn't because decisions were made with out all aspects being taken into play
