Already down to 30-something servers, the network has been hit with a huge denial of service attack, one which seems to have targeted the major hubs and open servers on the network. Information regarding the losses (six servers have been shut down in two days, one of which will not be returning) can be found at the network's news page. Having used EFNet for the last 5 years, I held on for dear life during the last bumpy ride, but I find myself wondering if the oldest IRC network can pull out of this type of situation a second time?"
