DDoS in March

To the surprise of some, the Pirate Bay website was under a DDoS attack earlier this week. Still no news about the intellectual authors. The site is stable for now.

According to an analysis of the anti-virus firm Sophos, the worm Confiker could start a DDoS attack to some sites, including Soutwest Airlines. The collateral damage would be a DoS due to the spread of the worm. The note on TechRepublic.

And the torrent's site Minova has been attacked by a DDoS. According to TorrentFreak the attack has reached the 2 Gbps peak. It seems to come from bot networks that appear to be in Germany and Argentina.
