At the end of March, a massive DDoS attack caused Internet speeds to slow around the world. Focused primarily against servers of the nonprofit, anti-spam organization Spamhaus, the distributed denial of service attack was reportedly led by a Netherlands company in an act of revenge for blocking its servers. Spamhaus had blacklisted the Dutch web host Cyberbunker to help email providers weed out potential spam.

The assault, noted as one of the largest DDoS attacks in Internet history, significantly slowed down Spamhaus services affecting users worldwide.
