Хакеры опрокинули DoubleClick и у сайтов ими пользующимися приключились колики :)
Computer users had difficulty accessing portions of the Internet's most highly trafficked Web sites yesterday after hackers launched an attack against DoubleClick Inc., the company that serves up online advertising to hundreds of commercial sites.
The attack followed one on four major search engines Monday, but it was not clear whether the two incidents were related.
Beginning about 10:30 a.m. yesterday, DoubleClick's Internet servers began to receive a flood of bogus Web page requests, creating a bottleneck that blocked many major sites from displaying ad images.
That jam in turn made it difficult for Internet users to reach certain pages at nearly all of the Internet's 40 most-visited Web sites. At the height of the assault, affected Web pages were available less than 25 percent of the time, according to Keynote Systems Inc., a Web performance monitoring company in San Mateo, Calif.
