Submission + - Rockies: ticket fiasco "malicious attack" (rockymountainnews.com)

LiftOp writes: "The FBI has launched an investigation into what the Colorado Rockies called an "external and malicious attack" that paralyzed Monday's online sale of World Series tickets, angering thousands of fans. The team said its online ticket system provider, Irvine, Calif.-based Paciolan Inc., was "overwhelmed" by 8.5 million computer hits in the first 90 minutes of sales. This forced the Rockies to postpone online sales to Tuesday when the almost 60,000 series tickets sold out in a matter of hours." http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/local/article/0,1299,DRMN_15_5732335,00.html
