FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says the Office of the Inspector General’s investigation into an alleged DDoS attack during the Net Neutrality debate reveals the whole thing never happened.

Apparently, the Inspector General has confirmed there was no FCC cyber attack, it was simply a system unable to handle the massive wave of comments on the controversial issue.

FCC blames Obama appointed CIO

And, by the way, it was the CIO appointed by the Democrats that really was to blame!

Yes, that's how FCC Chairman Ajit Pai framed the case:

"With respect to the report’s findings, I am deeply disappointed that the FCC’s former Chief Information Officer, who was hired by the prior Administration and is no longer with the Commission, provided inaccurate information about this incident to me, my office, Congress, and the American people. This is completely unacceptable."

This brings new meaning to the "politics of cybersecurity," doesn't it?
