Operation Shock and Awe

I just seen this file that is a greedy and lowlife attempt at attacking Bitcoin trading websites so that the users involved can buy the BTC once they’ve lowered the price, and then sell once the price has gone back up.

Really shady technique some people will use to get money. Really lowlife scum.

Here is the exact information:

Blame it on Mt.Gox

Here’s a cute youtube video parady about Mt. Gox crashing due to the DDOS, mentions of Bitcoinity and ClarkMoody also being down, and how “I could’ve had it all” a parady from Adele’s song “We Could Have Had it All”. Pretty funny and entertaining.

"I Could have had it all" Mtgox/Adele parody

MtGox DDoS’d again and attacks on many others

Well it’s that time again. It looks like MtGox and many other Bitcoin trading sites are under attack. Hacking attempts, DDoS attacks (distributed denial of service attacks) and other forms of attempts to slow the growth of Bitcoins.

MtGox, Bitfloor, Btc-E, Bitstamp, Bitcoinity, BitcoinCharts, Coinbase are some that I’ve personally noticed that are being attacked, anyone know of others please let us know by posting comments.
