DDoS is short for Distributed Denial of Service, it is an attack where multiple compromised systems (which are usually infected with a Trojan) are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Victims of a DDoS attack consist of both the end targeted system and all systems maliciously used and controlled by the hacker in the distributed attack.
Meh. Alec isn't posting anything about the current situation, so i guess he's spending his time on trying to fix it. As long as the crashes aren't longer than few hours... i can wait. Would be cool to know if anything is being fixed at all though.
