    The attackers used BGP — a key protocol used for routing internet traffic around the world — to reroute traffic to Amazon’s Route 53 service, the largest commercial cloud provider who count major websites such as Twitter.com as customers.

    They re-routed DNS traffic using a man in the middle attack using a server at Equinix in Chicago.

    From there, they served traffic for over two hours.
