HOSTING SERVICE Worldwide DNS suffered a denial of service attack this evening that caused chaos for its thousands of customers.
One such customer is Incisive Media, owner of the INQUIRER.
Whether the incident has anything to to with the leaking of
Dan Kaminsky's fabled vulnerability remains unclear. We strongly suspect it may be, however.
Worldwide DNS posted a statement on its web site confirming the attack. Its engineers are still working to resolve the problem.
The firm seems to be so busy we've been unable to get a full explanation of the events so far.
Incisive Media's techies had a late night but report that all is now well.
And INQ hacks around the world have been able to put away their John Bull printing kits, kept in reserve for just such emergencies.
Abnormal service will be resumed in the morning. µ
