    From Reverend at Techzonez as posted on MSFN:

    A quote from Techzonez host:

    At 9:00am on the 27/12/2002 we experienced a massive influx of bad traffic known as a DDOS attack
    This was not a small attack, it was in the region of 800mbit which not only brought down our network but also caused problems for Claranet and Telia.
    Claranet use Telia for transatlantic connections and the size of the attack caused the flooding of 2 Gigabit connections, which cause failures in the Claranet network. The size of this attack is the biggest Claranet have seen.
    The traffic was tracked down to compromised systems in a number of American universities and blocked, service was then restored, however due to the magnitude of this attack it did take a long time.

    It's amazing how some people on the 'Net don't have anything better to do than cause harm to others. DoS attacks have cost me around $500 USD in the past four years. I almost lost my co-lo all together.

    Damn it, I think old threads should have a big "THIS IS OLD" warnning on them if they are over 6 months old. It would stop people (me) reading thread bumps thinking "Wow, thats new!" then disscover it doesn't matre as it happend 2 YEARS A GO! :D
