Denial-of-Service Attacks on Twitter, Facebook, Google & LiveJournal

Facebook No Network

Denial-of-Service (Dos) attacks have been launched today against Twitter, Facebook and LiveJournal. Twitter and LiveJournal were taken completely offline and Facebook service has been degraded. Wired Epicenter has more on the DoS attacks.

Somebody needs to call a cyber plumber to come out and fix the tubes.

UPDATE 1: Google was also being targeted in today’s online attacks.

UPDATE 2: Facebook is saying that today’s DoS attacks targeted one specific user.
