Great strategy:
1 Produce Crap Software
2 Allow said software to DDOS competition
3 $$$

It does make one wonder, doesn't it?

Seems almost too perfect

MSN is showing no delays

Google is down in UK & Poland and through proxy servers from US.

Maybe it's down to electricity shortage in California :)

>I'm being told that a hostile DNS attack was launched against google, and that a fake registration to google.com through our favourite spammer domain service gandi.net was performed.

doing a whois lookup seems to confirm this

Out of interest - are we seeing people coming into our sites from other ses? Could be fun to see where people turn to when Google breaks down!

Wel... I don't think you'll get a better chance than this to launch that search engine you've had hiding in your closet.

Im curoius as to whether googlebot is making the rounds...any one have logfile showing it?

I mean what is the emergency proceedure over in google-land, do you stop crawling and focus on maximizing your bandwidth or do you keep googlebot out there in the wild?

I've been getting upwards of a dozen virus emails a day (that fit the description) for several weeks - are we saying these are responsible for bringing down Google, etc?

If the answer is yes, someone screwed up big time in the payload analysis.
