Hackers Launch "Enhancement of Service" Attack
This is priceless satire:
A group naming themselves The God Fearing Computer Hackers of Uzbekistan announced today that they were behind the Enhancement of Service Attack launched on the Microsoft.com web site, yesterday.
During the attack, which lasted 65 minutes, users were able to click straight through to the required page, without needing to wait for the page to load.
Engineers at Microsoft deny the attack took place, claiming it was the superiority of a new patch being tested which 'did the trick', but were unable to explain why the performance of the web site slowed to normal levels after the alleged attack took place.
