I saw application-layer DDoS in realtime. Someone was buying/selling in 0.01 BTC chunks non-stop.

They are claiming 80Gbps DDoS on the press release here https://mtgox.com/press_release_20130412.html

They should show the MRTG graph from their provider Prolexic.

It is so ridiculously easy to avoid though.

I wouldn't be surprised if Mt Gox engineered the crash themselves.
