Thread: First ever?

  1. #1

    Default First ever?

    This must be the first time that Google.com has crashed!

    Any search returns:

    Server Error
    The service you requested is not available at this time.
    Service error -27.

    Definatly not telkom this time, could be a massive DOS attack.

    Latest MyDoom Variant Gives Google Problems

    Posted by simoniker on Monday July 26, @18:50
    from the down-and-out dept.

    Devil's BSD writes "It seems like the latest MyDoom worm variant has caused a bit of an Internet storm. Google, at this time (12:28 EDT), is returning 503 errors on all queries submitted from certain locations. The MyDoom variant searches the user's address book for email domains (i.e. @yahoo.com) and searches various engines (such as Google) for email addresses in that domain."

    It was down earlier this evening. It seems the worm is sporadically overloading Akamai servers (Akamai is the distributed DNS company used by Google and most other super-large web sites.)

    It is likely to drop again a few more times as the worm attack fluctuates in intensity before it finally dissipates after a few days, when the incubation period is over. After that, the worm will turn its attention to trying to DDoS either Microsoft, SCO or the RIAA.
