Spain Wins Euro 2008, Comes under DDoS Attack
Spain went on to win Euro 2008, but after beating Russia last week 3-0, they came under a DDOS attack from a set of Black Energy botnets based in Argentina. The attacks lasted a few hours and didn’t seem to cause any substantial damage. There were no more attacks that we saw or identified following this brief set of attacks.
Emotions run high at international sporting events, and sometimes people take out their anger in various ways. Congratulations to the 2008 Spanish team for winning the European cup!
