Script-Kiddies at it again...

6 posts in this topic

As many of you might have noticed, the Slackware site has been down for the past week. This is a quote from the ChangeLog file from ftp.slackware.com:

"An update on http://slackware.com:

As many of you have noticed, the slackware.com website is not online.

We offer our apologies, but we've been the target of DoS attacks for a few

days. We're investigating the problem, but can't give an estimate of when

the site will return. If anyone has any additional information that might

be helpful to us in tracking down the source of these attacks, please email

us at security@slackware.com. Thanks for your patience."

It looks like those damn script-kiddies just can't stop!

well, at least they didn't blame hackers in general. LamerZ is more appropriate.

I think we should start making some conspiracy theorys here. Me first: I don't know... Really I can't think of any reason why would anyone attack a site that's out there only to support freedom. I can only guess it's someone against freedom of information, freedom of speech, open-source and of course your everyday terrorists: "hackers". Damn I hate scripterz! :grr:

hehe, I invented a new term :)
