nmx writes "The domain registrar Register.com is the target of yet another DDoS attack, effectively killing most of its customers' businesses:

"On Friday, November 12th we were hit by a distributed denial of service attack (ddos). We are actively working to mitigate the attack and restore services as soon as possible. Every available resource has been deployed to address this malicious attack."
