Anonymous: US company is protecting ISIS


Anonymous has attacked web services startup CloudFlare for providing protection against cyberattacks to pro-Isis websites.

The company protects customers against the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks popular amongst groups like Anonymous by routing connections through its own content delivery network. By weeding out malicious connections, it prevents DDoS attacks from succeeding in their goal of overwhelming a website with traffic so that it collapses.
