DDOS Attack

The new hosting company had a DDOS attack the last two hours. Huntsville Car Scene was one of many sites affected. Let's hope they permanantly fixed the problem.

If you were affected by this outage, please post here.

Approximately what time?

I found out that these attacks are actually an act of 'cyber-terrorism'. This post is from their support forum:

I hope you aren't insinuating that we actually pay them. For one, we don't negotiate with terrorists. Also, there's no guarantee that they will actually stop even after they're paid. We've got the proper authorities involved, that's the best we can do right now.

What I meant was, if they gave you a way to pay them, then the FBI or other authority has a way of knocking on their door and stopping them forever!!

Not quite. Typically, (and certainly in this case) they will use western union or similar services for receiving their "ransom." This service is nearly untraceable in most cases. Also, the FBI does not have jurisdiction in most other countries, which happens to be the issue here. This particular "person" is requesting the funds be sent to a country in eastern europe that is known to harbor terrorists.

This doesn't mean the FBI will not do anything, it just makes things less cut and dry.
