Phish fighters floored by DDoS assault

Castlecops, the volunteer security community that runs a well known phishing website investigation service, has been hit by a denial of service attack. The latest phase in an ongoing botnet powered onslaught that began on 13 February rendered the site largely inaccessible on Monday (19 February).

By Tuesday, the website returned albeit without the restoration of all its services. "We're under a DDoS, but we will prevail. Good shall overcome," Castlecops's principal Paul Laudanski said on a posting on the site's website. Phish fighters floored by DDoS assault | Channel Register
