Ustream outage due to DDoS aimed at citizen journalist
Hackers target streaming of anti-Putin protests with attack
Brad Hunstable, CEO of Ustream said phone interview from Budapest, this is bigger than one protest or one citizen journalist.
This is fundamentally about preserving freedom of speech and assembly on the Internet.
Ustream was hit with a DDOS, distributed denial-of-service attack today that apparently was
designed to interfere with the streaming of video from antigovernment demonstrations in Russia.
They were targeting a specific channel on Ustream of a Russian citizen journalist.
This is the third time in the last six months that a specific Russian citizen journalist was directly targeted through this complex and highly adaptive attack.
We get DDoS attacks all the time and we fight them off. It's not a big deal.
But this is adaptive beyond anything we've seen.
The attack started around 2:30 a.m. PT, which was 2:30 p.m. in Russia, and
it took Ustream engineers about 10 hours to get the site back up again for its 55 million users worldwide.
The attacks were using a variety of protocols, such as UDP and TCP/IP, but also the requests were coming from Russia, Kazakhstan, and Iran.
What we saw today were systematic attempts, method after method, up to seven methods, it was the largest attack the site has seen in its more than five years in operation.
Asked if he believed that the Russian government was behind the attack, Hunstable said he could not speculate.
We are in contact with many of the government agencies across the world.
Ustream is back up and running and we put the Russian protests back up on our front page.
This is about Internet freedom and our mission is to allow people to do this and we're not going to stop until we do.
I was able to get into the eaglechat, but not video after awhile, and this was posted in the chatroom
attack is/was in protest of Russian video
