On February 16, 2016, Steve Gibson announced on Security Now that GRC was offline due to a DDoS attack. He said that he went to the data center and captured packet logs and determined that it was a DNS reflection DDoS attack.
We want to be very clear. Total Drama had nothing to do with any attacks on GRC, Total Drama would never engage in illegal attacks such as this, and we do not condone and strongly condemn this behavior.
Steve Gibson apparently got his information second-hand from someone monitoring our IRC chat and may have misinterpreted jokes or other discussion. It seems that Steve is walking back the accusation, realizing the information was inaccurate, but we did not want to let this kind of misinformation fester.
We have been very supportive of Steve Gibson in the past. We have consistently brought up others defaming and insulting him as wrong acts. We have no motive whatsoever to attack Steve.
We don’t know that the TotalDrama.Net people have anything to do with these attacks on GRC… but it would be apparent to ANYONE that the TotalDrama.Net people are indeed holding onto that scale of animus and hatred and WOULD (and have) gone to any extremes available to hurt Leo and TWiT.
We don’t hate Leo and we don’t want to “hurt” Leo or TWiT. We want TWiT to return to greatness. We report the truth and people just don’t want to believe it. In each post where we make a claim, we present video and/or photographic proof.
We encourage whoever is performing the attacks to cease immediately — if they have not done so already.
