Dyn has not issued anything new on the Oct. 21 DDOS attack that clogged it up and took down some major customers, including Twitter – specifically, who did the attack and why. (Their most recent public report was Oct. 26 on the company blog.)

Meanwhile, the Mirai botnet that apparently was used to trigger the attack is “evolving” in unpleasant ways, according to this story from Wired:

John Costello, a senior analyst at the security intelligence firm Flashpoint, said “People are really being creative and finding new ways to infect devices that weren’t susceptible previously. Mirai is not going away.”
