Political and artistic sites get free “bat phone” dispatched DDoS protection

Under a program it's calling Project Galileo, San Francisco-based CloudFlare will work with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Committee to Protect Journalists, and at least 14 other non-profit groups to identify sites that are targeted for publishing politically or artistically themed content that may be considered controversial or objectionable. The program effectively equips the non profit partners with a "bat phone" they can use to reach a CloudFlare representative whenever such a site comes under a distributed denial-of-service attack designed to knock it offline. CloudFlare will then immediately provide mitigation services free of charge.
