Seely Mudd 106
Patrick McEvilly and Jefferson Burson of HUIT Networking will be presenting on the LMAnet DDOS and the steps being taken to protect against future problems. Current plans are for lunch and presentation in Seeley Mudd 106. "On the weekend of April 19th and into the following week a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack was launched against the Longwood Medical Area network. One institution in particular was the target while many others just got caught in the crossfire. Harvard's HUIT Network Services will present a review of the attack and the actions taken over that weekend to restore service. We will also showcase what the future might look like to protect the network from similar attacks in the future."
