When deadline for the attack was passed, one machine was
still (somewhat) up. However, immediately after the deadline,
this machine (located in the USA) was totally swamped under
We've tried connecting to it, just like the virus does. We
do this from three different sensors from three different
machines in three different countries. We haven't been able
to connect to it once. If we can't connect, neither can the viruses.
So the attack failed. Whoa.
We'll keep monitoring until 22:00 UTC. If we're not able
to connect once, we can safely say that the attack was prevented.
Update on 19:50 UTC
Still not a single connection from any of our sensors to
any of the servers.
Of course there's still the incoming udp 995--999 connections
to worry about.
