Denial Of Service Attack: The Natural Disaster Of The Virtual World
from the everywhere-you-go,-there's-a-problem dept
Investing in real estate almost everywhere puts you at the mercy of various natural disasters. In the US, on the west coast we have earthquakes. The north has blizzards. The mid-west has tornadoes. The southeast has hurricanes (you might have noticed). So, now that people are buying up virtual property in various online worlds and making a living there, does it mean that denial of service attacks in virtual worlds or other malware that take down servers are the equivalent of natural disasters in those worlds? Note in that last link people are complaining about how much money they lost thanks to the downtime.
