A crippling distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack battered the Internet last evening, knocking several Uecomm links offline. The attack began at 6pm yesterday, and continued to cause disruption until 11am today. It is not yet known if Australian Uecomm links were targeted exclusively, however global monitoring centres are yet to raise their alert status. The SANS institute's Internet storm centre makes no mention of the attack, nor does Internet Security System's global threat operation centre.

    Managing director of Imagineering Technologies in Melbourne, Matthew Proctor, says that the attack started at around 6pm. His Uecomm network link dropped off dramatically at that time, and stayed down for almost two hours.
