DDoS attack takes out Internet for whole country
Andorra Telecom, the tiny microstate's only internet service provider, tweeted that a barrage of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks had impacted the country's internet and 4G service.
According to reports, the DDoS attackers' true targets were participants in a Spanish-speaking online gaming tournament that was being streamed live on Twitch.
The Twitch Rivals Squidcraft Games is a Minecraft tournament for streamers, played on a customised version of Minecraft inspired by the popular Netflix TV show "Squid Game."
Some 150 of the most famous Spanish-speaking game streamers competed in various mini-games over five days, and were eliminated one-by-one as they battled to win the grand prize of $100,000.
