Lots of stories all over the web about a big Denial of Service attack aimed at Six Apart.
CNet quoting Anil Dash:
“Any large service tends to have a pretty constant level of attacks, but this was on a scale that I don’t think anybody could have anticipated,” Dash said. “I think it is of a scale that would have impacted any large site on the Web”.
We’ve had one of these before, on a much smaller scale out of China. It’s never, ever nice. My thoughts with the SixApart team at this time.
