Engadget: FCC admits its comment system never suffered DDoS attack

Engadget: FCC admits its comment system never suffered DDoS attack. “If you didn’t buy the FCC’s claims that its comment system fell prone to a DDoS attack when it was soliciting net neutrality comments, investigators have just validated your suspicions. An imminent report from the agency’s Inspector General has revealed that there’s no evidence of such an attack. To put it another way, the comment system’s problems were more likely due to large-scale opposition to the net neutrality repeal (helped by Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver), not an untimely hacking campaign.”
