A tool for checking fakery was DDoss-ed the other day, possibly due to a Syria photo that shows signs of fakery.
Yesterday evening, on Feb 27 at 5:18pm localtime (00:18 GMT), the FotoForensics server came under a large distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. They generated nearly 8Gb/sec before the system went offline, and the ISP informed me that it topped out at around 30Gb/sec. (If your home network is a 100Mb network, then this is 300x more network traffic than your home can withstand.) The outage lasted 24 hours.
