+ - Aussie broadband forum crippled by DDoS->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Australia is once again full of bored IT office workers after one of Australia's biggest volunteer-run internet forums, Whirlpool, was taken down for a second straight day by a sustained distributed denial of service attack. Traffic from the first attack — traced to servers in Denmark and the U.S. — was blocked by upstream providers yesterday, but the attacks resumed again overnight. The web host that takes care of Whirlpool will now hand over evidence of the attacks — including several servers that have been preserved as a crime scene — to law enforcement agencies in the hope of tracking down those responsible. Whirlpool is ranked just behind MSN in Alexa's top 100 Australian sites."
