On the 10th of March 2016, the company Staminus dedicated to protect and mitigate DDoS attacks, notified through its official Twitter account @StaminusComm that the service was suffering attacks itself.
Around 05:00 UTC-8, Staminus reported that critical parts of their systems had been affected, so Staminus could not guarantee the integrity of their services. 24 hours later, the company CEO, Matt Mahvi, made a brief statement of the incident on the official website Staminus.
Although the author has not been established, or either the motivation of the action, in a statement in the file named Zine.txt within the filtration itself, the alleged authors make explicit mention that Staminus offered their services to organisations such as the Ku Klux Klan, considered as a terrorist group in some regions.
