    dont know why their bothering, its not as though the "blocking" stopped anything at all with regards access to that particular site, its just paying lip service to the industry bodies crying afoul about "lost revenue"

    Totally.

    @Garacesh No you are not the only one, so far they seem to be doing nothing except lets face it - being just as bad as the kids - tantrum time and throwing toys out of the pram.

    I used to have sympathy for these kinds of people but you know that sympathy has all gone.

    My sympathy disappeared when they attacked the Minecraft login servers, and the EVE online servers.

    Website owners and switch makers could easily block a DDOS attack if they actually sat down and had a think about it.

    Most of the time it doesn't come from a sophisticated botnet or anything like that. It comes from a few machines loading up LOIC.

    LOIC, the "anonymous" DDoS tool that exposes whoever is contributing to an attack if they don't mask it via a proxy?
