LiveJournal hacked again

PanARMENIAN.Net - SUP company announced that the reason of technical downtime in blog hosting operation of LiveJournal was new DDoS-attack, the company reports.

“Even reserve console was out of order, that would help us understand what is going wrong with the network equipment, therefore the only source of information for us and other clients were providers. Later on DDoS Mitigation Protocol was set and launched, by results of which we saw that incoming traffic amounted to 6 Gb with 8 Gb peaks, which is, obviously, the upper limit for Qwest and Verizon,” said Ilya Dronov, LiveJournal Promotion Director, adding that the peak for incoming traffic for previous attacks stood at 2 Gb.

Earlier SUP representatives refuted attack version, explaining downtime in blog hosting by problems in data centers, where LiveJournal servers are located.

Responsibility for technical bug was laid upon U.S. communication operators Qwest and Verizon, Lenta.ru reports.
