BBC Hit With New Year’s Eve DDoS Attack

Websites of the BBC, including those with news content, were rendered unavailable by a New Year’s Eve DDoS attack, the venerable company reported. The outage lasted on the order of three hours. Service has been restored.

From BBC News (italics added):

All the BBC’s websites were unavailable early on Thursday morning because of a large web attack.

The problems began about 0700 GMT and meant visitors to the site saw an error message rather than webpages.
