    This is a pretty significant attack today and it affected a number of big name companies

    Twitter/Reddit etc, whoever is using DYN as their public DNS provider. And to a lesser extend, US-East-1 of Amazon Web Services is also affected

    My company was kind of affected as well including our third party monitoring devices

    The East coast area (where I am in) got hit the hardest apparently
