    I follow his blog for some years now and highly respect his work. It doesn't help him now but this and all other attacks in the past is proof of the huge impact he accomplishs. Any ideas how to support him ?

    Same here .
    This attack is clear proof that his aim is true ( not that proof were needed ) .

    But I'm not fully convinced that vDOS wielded that sort of botnet power ; this attack seems to be on a much bigger scale.
    .... time will tell , or maybe not :)
