The strategy adopted in the Dyn distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack remains a purported accentuation to classify it as a recent state-of-the-art DDoS even though it took place in 2016. It was one of the biggest DDoS ever launched and affected the availability of essential internet services. In exploiting vulnerabilities, the attack exposed the insecurity that surrounds some IoT devices. It helps experts in further deployment of detection techniques and countermeasures strategy. In this paper, a multi-stakeholder approach to mitigating against such attacks explored by critically analyse and reflect on the Dyn DDoS attack and hacking techniques. A discussion on possible countermeasures followed to suggest hybrid solutions by multiple different organisations to provide a secured solution to the internet against similar attacks.
