GitHub wobbles under DDOS attack


Re: Can someone explain...

Depends on what you consider valuable. Ddos is mainly run for 2 reasons

a) damaging someone's business

b) preventing users from accessing information

Github hosts and promotes many projects circumventing filters and firewalls and promoting free speech - something which countries such as China don't like too much.
