It's not necessarily a DDoS attack whenever a website is down. With the recent upsurge in interest for Bitcoin, some websites were just caught unprepared for these levels of legitimate(!) traffic, that's all.

As a site admin, ive been confronted to DDOS and I can assure you it is a DDOS attack. All these different site coming down same time is common to this type of attack.

If Prolexic can't block them, who can!They are supposed to be one of the biggest specialized firm to prevent such attacks.
Until GOX invest BIG in its own hardware protection, which will take at least 2 weeks,just Sit and watch the drama unfold.I can only see more panick and more diving with those more recurrent attacks.

How Ripple Rips you: "The founders of Ripple Labs created 100 billion XRP at Ripple's inception. No more can be created according to the rules of the Ripple protocol. Of the 100 billion created, 20 billion XRP were retained by the creators, seeders, venture capital companies and other founders. The remaining 80 billion were given to Ripple Labs. Ripple Labs intends to distribute and sell 55 of that 80 billion XRP to users and strategic partners. Ripple Labs also had a giveaway of under 200 million XRP (0.002% of all XRP) via World Community Grid that was later discontinued.[29] Ripple Labs will retain the remaining 25 billion"

It's a DDoS alright. No doubt about it.

I'm sorry, are you the owner of any of those websites, that you're so sure about what is or isn't happening with them?

Yeah, this is the Speculation sub after all. Just posted what I saw on the BFL shoutbox earlier while they were discussing conspiracy theories.

There's no ddos, it's a panic sell, it's crashed. The servers are slow because everyone is trying to get out.
I mean - how deep in denial can you be?

It is a panic sell, but ddos is not totally out of the picture.

I was talking about bitcoincharts.com and other tracking-only websites. There's little reason to DDoS those, as people can find the information they need at the primary source anyway. They're probably just overwhelmed with legitimate requests.

Blocking a DDoS == Pissing in the wind..

No matter how big a pipe you have or how big a black hole your provider(s) have, the DDoSers will always be able to knock you around.

Blocking this information is perfect way to induce panic

Well, there are people who are in complete denial that DDoSs are happening, and there are people in complete denial that there are factors other than DDoS at play. I think both groups of people are equally stupid  Grin Grin Grin

The only SERIOUS lag I saw was in the 40 minutes or so after MtGox came back up. After that its's been very smooth excepting the odd period of 10 or 20 second lag.

So, no DDoS today.

Yet.

Why bother? Most of their job is done.
