Skip to 28mins 12secs where Major TJ O'Connor brags about the Wikileaks DDos hit if you don't want to sit through the whole thing. In computing, a denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. The Major calls him a "Patriotic Hacker", that's doublespeak for one of our contractors. The contractor involved, "The Jester" has recently also set his sights on Ecuador in retaliation for thinking about offering NSA whistleblower/hero Edward Snowden sanctuary. He is now taking credit for shutting down their stock exchange and travel sites with a DDos attack like the one he did on Wikileaks.
