[liberationtech] Fwd: Avaaz

Regrets. I had intended to send this to the full list.

I'm asking about specific interests because I suspect (but don't yet know)
that we have specific interests in not disclosing information -- such as
that which may make another attack more likely/difficult to defend against.

Unsure whether this info would fit that bill or not. Perhaps someone here
could speculate.

These are helpful - thank you Eric.

I'm not familiar with the list, and I'm not a security expert, so pardon me
for asking but is there an interest in this information beyond curiosity?

Brant, what was the attack’s size?

What was done to repel it?

Any idea who was behind the attack, or what its specific purpose was?

If you’re on the LibTech list, it sounds as if these are questions the list
members would love to learn about.

Sure enough. Howdy folks. Brant here.

I'm not on the team responding to the DOS attack, but I can take any
questions or concerns and report back.

Fire away!

I believe someone from the Avaaz team has just joined our list, so if you
have questions for Avaaz, now would be the time to ask.
