Dyn.com, a popular dynmic DNS provider and provider of commercial managed DNS services is currently experiencing a massice DDoS attack. As a result, many sites that are using Dyn.com's services are experiencing issues. 

Affected are not just home/hobby sites that traditionally use dynamic DNS services, but also large "name brand" sites that use Dyn.com's managed DNS service. For example Twitter, Spotify, Etsry, Github and others (domains hosted by Dyn.com often use *.dynect.net name servers)
