Nope.

A DDoS can't last forever and performing it means giving away a large compromised network. This operation has an huge cost for the hacker and usually it's something desperate.

Yes, a DDoS can be used as an excuse for covering a succesfull attempt of violation, but usually the server will be immediatelly shut down and a backup placed insted of it.

I just transferred 5 BTC over to MtGox earlier today, then less than an hour later it started becoming impossible to go on. And they never showed up in my balance.

Am I going to lose those bitcoins?

No, don't worry, this is fine. Your balance will show up correctly once things are back to normal.

@Sammoocow: unlikely unless there's a tremendous data breach and wallets are stolen. Bitcoins aren't really sent "to" Mt Gox in the sense that their server has to remain up; it's more like a deed transfer, in that there is a public record that ownership of the coins has been transferred.

Is there another "liquid" exchange, or is the only one down?

Does "liquid market" have a different meaning in Russian?  Tongue
I'm sure it won't always be that way, since you seem to have an aggressive strategy for growth.
