Time to add a new definition to cybersecurity textbooks:

DoS attack: floods a server with traffic, making a website or resource unavailable.

DDoS attack: is a DoS attack that uses multiple computers or machines to flood a targeted resource.

Crowd Strike attack: is a DDoS attack that targets ALL resources.

Today, Crowdstrike delivers 100% cybersecurity level from loss of confidentiality. Systems being down won't be the target of any cyberattack. (for convenience, we ignore availability for the time being)

The impact of this #Crowdstrike #oopsie is severe. Affected machines can't just reboot, it needs manual intervention ATM, which is next to impossible on many affected systems. And as if things couldn't get worse, there's also the aftermath of an #Azure outage that puts 365 in a degraded state. Double Whammy on a Friday for the #Microsoft #Windows ecosystem.. https://www.theregister.com/2024/07/19/microsoft_365_azure_outage_central_us/
