+ - Register.com under DDoS attack

xlotlu writes: The Inquirer reported that starting on the night of April 1st, the domain name registrar Register.com was suffering spurious DNS resolving issues (link intentionally left out to avoid slashdotting).

While the company has kept silent during the first day, it now seems they confirmed it's a DDoS attack on their DNS servers.

The media has been silent about it so far, despite the growing angry mob of twitterers and the bitter comments in the original Inquirer article, blaming the registrar for lost business. Speculation as to whom is behind this obviously includes Conficker.
