I’ve used CloudFlare to speed up and secure my websites for years. It is quite astounding that CloudFlare still provides a free plan that is very good. The only other software service that provides such a great free option that I know of is Mailchimp.
I wrote awhile back how even hackers use CloudFlare to protect their website. This of course is a great testament to how good CloudFlare is as the guys that know how to hack websites select CloudFlare because of how good their service is in protecting websites.
It’s come to light recently that the founders of a major player, called vDOS, that specializes in DDoS attacks for hire have been identified and arrested by the F.B.I.. There are many DDoS attackers out there however vDOS is different in that it is a reseller of DDoS services when one can pay a monthly subscription to invoke DDoS attacks. In essence, if you don’t like a particular organization you could subscribe to vDOS and get them to take-down the organizations website through a DDoS attack.
So what has CloudFlare got to do with all of this? Well vDOS use CloudFlare to protect and speed up their own website.
