The entire internet will shutdown for 24 hours next year, according to a dire new forecast from security vendor LogRhythm.

According to LogRhythm chief information security officer and vice president, James Carder, the cause will not simply be a technical glitch that stops internet users uploading selfies on Instagram. It’s going to be a large-scale cyberattack.

“In 2017, we’re going to see it hit big sometime, somewhere,” Mr Carder told Business Insider “If the internet goes down, financial markets will tank.”

According to the security expert, there were signs throughout 2016 that online criminals were “testing missiles, by shooting them into the ocean.”

“We saw the massive DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) against DynDNS just a couple of months ago,” he added.

“That DDoS attack took down sites like Twitter and Spotify for a few hours. We saw a similar DDoS hit Brian Krebs before the attack against Dyn.
