Denial of service attacks, Oct. 21, 2016

Editor's note: In a tweet, WikiLeaks urged supporters to "stop taking down the US internet," saying Julian Assange is still alive and the organization is still publishing. Earlier this week, Ecuador's government said it partly restricted internet access for Assange, who has been living at the country's London embassy. WikiLeaks has been publishing emails connected to Hillary Clinton campaign, and U.S. officials believe Russia is tied to the hack. Officials have not said who is responsible for Friday's attacks on Dyn's DNS infrastructure, which is causing widespread disruption. However, an intelligence official told NBC News it is unlikely these are state sponsored attacks. - Stephanie
