This morning (US Eastern time), many popular websites and mobile apps – including those from Twitter, Reddit, Spotify, CNN, and sites hosted by Wix – experienced outages, and this afternoon sites that recovered earlier seemed to go offline once again. At least as of now, the massive failures seems to stem from an attack launched by an as-of-yet unknown party (or parties) against Dyn, a provider of Domain Name Services (DNS) – a critical technology necessary for the functioning of the modern Internet. While some of the impacted systems do seem to be back online, Dyn reportsthat as of 1 PM Eastern time today its engineers are still fighting off the attack.

DNS refers to a service that, among other things, allows people to refer to computers on the Internet by name, rather than by an IP numeric address. If you enter CNN.COM, for example, DNS translates that name to a specific IP address to which your request and the resulting network traffic is routed. Because DNS mappings can be dynamic, DNS services can also help provide load balancing, redundancy, and, perhaps ironically in the context of this article, even protection against some denial of service attacks.
