2009.1 January - Global Distributed Denial of Service Attack Causing Major Problems with Internet

Submitted by Admin on Fri, 30/01/2009 - 22:30

As a hosting provider, Inc. has been experiencing slowed web page connections since the middle of January 2009, and the problems seemed to be escalating. When Bell Canada's services were disrupted by a power failure on January 27, we moved our sites to a backup location until the service could be restored. We found, to our disappointment, that the page requests being made to the backup servers were being responded to almost instantly by the web servers, but the name resolution for the web pages was showing a delay of up to 2 minutes before the request reached the web servers. When we looked at our name servers, we discovered that we were being victimized by a DDOS attack.
