With the deep bit situation, the motivation of the 'hackers' seems to be to stimulate the abandonment of deep bit to spread out the mining rate.

An attack on MTGOX could be along similar lines...attempting to force people to use other exchanges.

But has it even been confirmed that it was a ddos or could it just be some growing pains?

On mtgox support forums (just added  Smiley), they have stated that it's a ddos.

Something fishy is going on with MTgox and all other bitcoin exchanges. I have a pretty good feeling MTgox will liquidate very soon.

ya, im pretty sure the attacks are coming from someone who loves bitcoin and understands(sadly unlike most) that diversification is very important. I for one would love to see people realize just how dangerous such a massive amount of trust in single entities is. unfortunately alot of people still feel very comfortable playing the whole 'monkey see monkey do' game, luckily that is one of the things bitcoin has come to change.

Seems like to me some of it's still down.  I can't connect to the https://mtgox.com/code/data/getDepth.php file with my ticker script.  Although I can see the file if I connect directly to it.

I had the same problem...I see in the responses that they seem to be using an anti-DDOS service called blacklotus.net.  I'm guessing the fact that I was polling on a regular interval (1 min), I was flagged as being DDOS like traffic.  From the same machine I can connect from a browser with no problem.  I've emailed them about it (I'm imagine I could craft the headers to mimic the browser and work around it...and maybe randomize the interval of the request to avoid getting flagged again, but I'm hoping mtgox might have a better suggestion for me).
