8:30pm update: I just tried to access the same blogs that were affected by the Hosting Matters Hack Attack and they are all inaccessable – again.
So far, I can’t access these sites:
Anyone know anything?
Update: It looks like this is more cyberjihad.
LGF says Hosting Matters is under a hack attack:
I’ve received quite a few emails this morning from people having trouble getting to blogs like Power Line and Captain’s Quarters.
The reason for the problem: Hosting Matters is experiencing a Denial of Service attack. They’re working to block it now.
More info on DoS attacks: Wikipedia: Denial-of-service attack.
UPDATE at 4/28/06 8:43:47 am:
Although LGF is also at Hosting Matters, we were moved to a different network after experiencing a similar attack. (That’s why we’re still up.)
UPDATE at 4/28/06 8:48:17 am:
I may have spoken too soon; some parts of the LGF system are beginning to act a bit flaky.
UPDATE at 4/28/06 9:27:25 am:
The attack reportedly originates in Saudi Arabia.
I can’t access Hugh Hewitt‘s site either.
Michelle has the list of blogs downed by the attack.
Update: Hugh Hewitt‘s site is a casualty of this attack. One good thing, though: Mary Katharine is able to join us for a while.
