Last week, the US experienced a large cyberattack that left all porn sites fully functional.  The DDoS, or distributed denial-of-service attack, affected various services and websites such as Twitter, Netflix, and Spotify.  Officials are trying to determine the source behind the attack.

One official said, “We have eliminated radical hacker groups comprising female college students, since they would never disrupt Netflix to work on their homework.  Russia or China look promising.”

“I’m confident it is Russia,” said one cybersecurity expert reflecting the consensus opinion.  “Just as the Russians didn’t ban imports of vodka and baby formula, they will not interfere with access to porn.”

Verification is still required, but the attack appears to have left Russian mail-order bride and Russian Orthodox Church websites fully functional.  Greek and Antiochian Orthodox Churches were unreachable.
