An entire country was DDoS’d because of a ‘Squid Game’ themed Minecraft tournament and tbh every 2022 headline reads like an article from @TheOnion #theWorstTimeline
ℹ️ Confirmed: Internet disruption registered on #Andorra Telecom (AS6752) on Saturday evening; the incident is attributed by the state telco to a DDoS attack targeting the high-stakes #SquidCraftGames Minecraft Twitch competition, resulting in the elimination of Team Andorra 📉📈
