We're advised that Pprune has been the subject of a Denial of Service atack, emenating from Taiwan ??????
The I/C PPrune , says he'll be back on the air yesterday, errrrr maybe he meant today.
Denial of Service attacks, hacking or pHReaKINg (Kewl) tend to be from hackers or attackers, diametrically opposed to the standpoint , percieved or otherwise of a website. Political PHrEAkiNG is gaining in popularity , especialy while we're liberating the Iraqi people from their oppressors. (I expect Interflora in Baghdad, have never had it so good)
Put simply, if your website is big, popular and maintains a certain political stance there is a chance, that some "Cyber Freedom Fighter" will ruin your day.
