Yesterday, some of the famous forums and blogs in the Philippines are currently down and experiencing distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack). According to the blog post of Rofus DelaCruz, this attack on forums and blogs was declared by PhLuzon Anonimos and requested by Anon Butan Ding. Rofus DelaCruz also said that PinoyDen, PinoyTechBlog, Symbianize and even YugaTech are among the websites that has been attacked this week. More details after the jump.
"This is a very large attack that is why wala tayong magawa since mahal po ang mga Anti-DDoS Appliances or Anti-DDoS services. Pero rest assured that I am doing everything I can to restore the website. Sa ngayun po aagaayos na po kami ng temporary server at sana ay kayanin nya yung ganun kalaking traffic."
"sorry guys got hacked again... it's getting worse but will try to have it fixed asap"
"the one that did this to our HOME is just Stupid. i don't know what is he trying to prove fordoing such things.... what he is doing is just plain STUPIDITY..... anung mapapala mo sa paghack ng websites tulad ng PD at SYMB??.. magyayabang? what a non-sense act......"
"we're moving to a new server so some ISPs might not see the new DNS"

What is a DoS attack or DDoS attack?
One common method of attack involves saturating the target machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. Such attacks usually lead to a server overload. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.
