eNom taking their customers for stupid

I guess everyone knows by now about the major DDoS attack perpetrated by a botnet of zombie IoT devices and as it seems the folks at eNom learned about it too.

So they thought that using the attack they could take their customer for fools and upsell SSL certificates, because why not? Didn’t you know that SSL protects you from DDoS targeting the DNS servers?


Throw away the logic in the message above because you don’t need it, all you actually need is to fall victim of a shady business practice after falling victim to a malicious attack.
