    If you posted pics on this site, they're publicly available by definition. So when you posted them, THAT'S when you let the cat out of the bag.

    DDoS; Distributed Denial of Service attack; when a hostile actor gains control of hundreds or even thousands of computers and directs them all to flood a given website in an attempt to make it crash.

    This has NOTHING to do with stealing data; which makes no sense because there's nothing but public data on a public forum anyway.

    Mr. buzz. DDOS is a Distributed denial of Service. The attack floods the website with many oversized data packets from computers that have been compromised. This causes the traffic flow to the website to become jammed up, hence we cannot get it to load. In layman's terms.

    LMAO! I know, right?

    That's almost as precious as valuing Snapchat at $30 BILLION, even though they've never turned a dime in profit and in fact LOST $500 MILLION just last year!

    Amazon they aren't, lol
