When DDOS is anonymized by TOR, it's provenance is impossible to establish
What if it's not really DDOS at all crippling Empire?
Ever since Silkroad, markets have been too hard to get into, for 90% of drug users and 99% of drug dealers. Empire, being the largest market, has achieved the holy grail:- it's captured the lucrative darknet xanax market.
But with every silver lining comes a cloud.
I've got an alternative theory to postulate. What if it's a human "bartard botnet", made up of xanax users failing to solve the capcha - again and again and again?
No! Really, hear me out. Picture this:-
You're a xanax user and you're soooo high. You KNOW there are more bars inside the computer on some intellectual level, you've just got to solve a puzzle to get them out.
Trying to focus your eyes, you attempt to click your mouse in a box and miss by a fucking mile.
Is that a "g" or a "9"? Lips move as you type, eyelids heavy. Is it a traffic light or a palm tree? We've all been there on various drugs.
Becoming frustrated, failing again and again to prove that you're not a robot, the alprazolam really starting to kick in. Your manual dexterity is leaving you.
In frustration you mash uselessly at the keyboard, hands like dolphin flippers. Intellectual faculties reduced below the turing test threshold. Wyh barz no LttmE in?! u
You zone out for what seems like a fraction of a second as you remember being told once that the word "xanax" is a pallindrome, the same backwards as forwards like "radar". But it's actually been an hour.
Snapping suddenly into an upright position you make one final swing at the keyboard, miss, and hit the bathroom floor.
The laptop is downstairs, in the fridge. 2FA? It's out of the fucking question mate
Service denied by users of an RC benzo. ddos gets an unfair rap.
