Sony and Microsoft gamer network targets

From Christmas to Dec 30, the DDoS on Sony in St Louis and Microsoft in Seattle has continued.

http://map.ipviking.com/ has a great pictorial representation.

As at 2:30 PM local time in Seattle, (4:30 PM St Louis) the attack was still in full force.

Hard to know how many of those people are trying to log in, repeatedly, and how many are really part of the DDoS. It all ends up looking the same at the receiving end. And I'm betting a lot of the same people using the gaming system are infected with trojans.
