+ - Amazon Blames Crash On Hardware, Not Hackers->

Amazon sites in Europe were offline for half an hour on Sunday, but the online seller says the problem was due to hardware faults, not an attack inspired by the continuing WikiLeaks cyber-war.

The Amazon sites for the UK, Germany, Italy and France were all out for about half an hour around 9pm Sunday night. Amazon had been a target of reprisals last week, for removing WikiLeaks from its servers, but the outage was apparently caused by hardware problems, not a denial of service (DoS) attack.
