What was the motive behind the Mirai DDoS attack?

Ugly people out there trying to hurt one of the good guys. Over the years Dyn have done a lot for the community. I'll happily continue to use them as a paid-for pro subscriber.

I'm sure almost all those were free users who simply switched to elsewhere, perhaps not realising that DDoS attacks can hit anyone. Dyn are now probably better protected than most.
