DDoS'd

17 January 2007 | Permalink

disoriented.net is now back after a few days offline. The outage was the result of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack targeted at another site on the same server that hosts disoriented.net. The site targeted apparently provides information about spam and other Internet abuse, and it seems that the spammers didn't appreciate having their business discussed in public and decided to take it down. Unfortunately, the fallout from their attack spilled over and affected a bunch of other sites that happened to live on the same box.
