Hey everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to share a neat thing that KnightSwarm is doing. Since 8PM (EST) they've been partaking in a 25 hour long gaming marathon to help raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospital. It's been six hours and I see they're still going strong. The goal is to reach $2,000, of which 56% has been raised already ($1,110). I've been put down for $50 and hope others will be willing to donate something too!

Strange situation.  Needless to say, they should have filtering in place.  

Looks like a single homed Level 3 customer in Cincinnati.  Perhaps time for an architecture review.

Morally awful that the site was a target of digital terrorists considering the nature of it.  

Extra Life is one of their featured users of their platform --> 
While we're on the subject of really awesome ways to raise money for charity, can I throw out that Desert Bus for Hope 7 starts in just a couple weeks?


If I had money to toss towards KS, I'd definitely do it!  Been watching extralife for quite a bit today.

From my understanding it wasn't Extra Life that was attacked specifically.  If I recall (it was in a reddit post) Extra Life is ran on Level 3's CDN.  Level 3's CDN got hit and Extra Life was part of the collateral damage.
