Steve Gibson runs a webside dedicated to empowering people to understand technology and security which should go hand in hand.
There is an article from 2001 from the time the website was attacked by a so-called “Distributed Denial of Service” attack.

Read the interesting documentary complete with diagrams and chat logs with the hacker himself. www.crime-research.org/library/grcdos.pdf
