Denial of Service Attacks

Typepad and therefore this blog has been under attack for the past several days…. for ransom:

UPDATE: SAY Media has responded that they, too, received a “ransom” note which didn’t specify an amount. The company ignored the note and focused instead on mitigating the attack. They are also cooperating with the FBI on this investigation. “We’ve made excellent progress this morning, but still have some customers impacted and we’ll keep you posted when there’s more news to share,” a spokesperson said.

I say they need to catch the culprits and fry them.

What do you think?
