Hack Attack

The Peking Duck and hundreds of other blogs were down for the past 12 hours or so after Hosting Matters got hit with a huge denial of service attack that appears to have been generated from computers in Saudi Arabia. Anyway, it looks like we’re back, but not completely stable yet (it took me several minutes to get to this page). There goes the site traffic.

Thanks for hanging in there with me, and I hope things get back to normal soon.

Are you sure the attack was launched from Saudi Arabia or was it just made to look that way?

It looks like somone on the China Daily site was hoping for something like this to happen.
