no - bitcoin.org =/= mining pool so it benefits no one in the mining difficulty sense of things.  it may muck up a new user who found this link from someone irl and want to discover btc but luckily there are places like here that can bring them up to speed.

What would hackers gain by a DDoS attack on bitcoin.org? There is nothing there... Just a wiki, right?

Probably just some anti-Foundation skiddie who saw this:

I think the first thing to do once the site's up again is to check the links then  Roll Eyes

So you are saying it is not credible that the site is sponsored by the Foundation but claims it is completely independent ... and now people are mad?

DDoS is usually a waste of resources. Just have to wait until they tucker themselves out; it's analogous to an angry child.

A pointless waste of cycles. If they just wanted to throw away electricity they should have mined alts.

It's usually other peoples' resources, though. I'm getting annoyed with the ease at which DDoS  can be deployed. A way to severely limit this tool from nefarious actors is remove the number of host machines easily susceptible to becoming a bot. This can be done by automatically or easily cleaning up computers compromised by viruses, which I think is possible but requires some well thought out software and hardware designs.

The Foundation is welcome to help bitcoin.org.

As for the worry that the Foundation could try to "buy" some control over the website, I was concerned this could happen when we started having recurring costs (server) until we had alternative funding options. So currently, the sponsorship is just a "win-win" for everyone, and the Foundation thus far is only helpful.

For the record, we've had DDoS attacks on a regular basis recently and migrated to Black Lotus, but apparently this didn't help as the attackers started using UDP-flood attacks over 10gbps, which is too much for Black Lotus. The very long downtime today was far enough so we switched to other DDoS solutions for now. I'll keep monitoring what works best.

DNS changes may take up to 24-48 hours before being deployed worldwide.

If you ping bitcoin.org, what IP do you get? ( should be 199.83.129.139 or 199.83.131.8 )

Did not you employ Cloudflare or any other CDN to deal with DDOS ?
