2checkout - DDoS?


Hi everyone,
If anyone else has probably noticed, 2checkout.com seems to be totally un-reachable.
Maybe another DDoS? Pitty on the attackers, to do such a thing during thanksgiving vacation.
The main problem here seems to be that 2checkout posted they wouldn't be back in offices until Monday, meaning this downtime could last quite a while

As I mentioned in the thread in the business forum, I was sure there were tech people responding, and there are. Here's is what is posted on the seller login page:

November 28, 2003: Update - Current DDoS Attack
The current attacked has been blocked prior to filling our Data Pipe. However, the attackers have now taken a number of ISPs offline, including our provider. All support is working on rectifying this situation.

November 28, 2003: Processing under Attack

Since early this am, Sales have been slowed by a new style Service Attack. This attack is being experienced by a number of payment companies. The attack is under control except for a data communications problem thru the upstream provider. All tech support staff at the ISP and 2CO are addressing this issue.

I am able to access both the seller pages and sales pages as of 2:25 PM CT with normal speed. Let's hope it stays up.

Would you mind posting a link to the sellers page? I normally just access it via the main page so I don't have it bookmarked.

I wonder if it's the same face behind all these DDOS attacks ...

I am still unable to access 2checkout.com from Boston, MA.
ISP is RCN.
I'm guessing it's because of the other DDoS problems they are having?

I still cannot access 2checkout.com. I am located in Alden, NY (near Buffalo). My ISP is Roadrunner (Timewarner) and Earthlink for backup.
