SixApart DOS attack

May 4, 2006

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.

  1. Thanks, Duncan, I know the whole TypePad team appreciates it. 🙂 And it looks like we’re pretty solidly back up now.
