"But IRC channels are increasingly being hit with denial of service attacks that are severe enough to cause their service contracts with ISPs to be terminated and IRC servers to shut down, threatening the existence of the service.

    Some Undernet servers have been taken down at the request of the ISP that hosts the service, and Undernet officials say the chat may be forced to go offline permanently if the attack continues. "
