Maybe I should create DDoS thead? - these go on all the time, but I wonder how much of it is actually reported. Most recently large webhoster, ThePlanet, was attacked:http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/arch ... -continue/
# April 6-7: Customers of The Planet are hit by web site outages as a result of a DDoS aimed at the huge hosting company. “We will be updating DNS to mitigate attack risks further, but the attack volume was massive,” The Planet said on its Twitter stream. “Given the volume of the attack, our network operations team rerouted all name server traffic through our DDoS mitigation capabilities.” The Planet hosts more than 48,000 servers.
