I was recently sent a link by my friend Steve Gold highlighting the work of a hacker who goes by the name “Jester”. Apparently this hacker has found a way of initiating a DDOS attack without relying on a distributed network of systems. Instead he uses a low spec Linux PC and an anomizer service that has unrestricted bandwidth.

My initial reaction was one of scepticism but apparently the “authorities” are taking this threat seriously. Check out the story here and see what you think.
