Worldbankpresident.org down, Sabotage Suspected

In what appears to be a carefully timed attack, the worldbankpresident.org blog has been taken off line by unknown parties. The site, established two years ago to track the selection process which resulted in Wolfowitz's appointment, has been a mecca for journalists, activists and others seeking up to date and inside information on what is happening to the World Bank president.

Specialist site on World Bank president off-line during resignation negotiations: sabotage suspected

In what appears to be a carefully timed attack, the worldbankpresident.org blog has been taken off line by unknown parties. The site, established two years ago to track the selection process which resulted in Wolfowitz's appointment, has been a mecca for journalists, activists and others seeking up to date and inside information on what is happening to the World Bank president.

This afternoon, within minutes of worldbankpresident.org posting a story detailing the strong rumours that Wolfowitz's resignation is to be announced this week, the site went down. The site's hosting company says that the pattern of activity is suspicious, almost certainly a so-called 'denial of service' attack. This means a coordinated internet bombardment aiming to take down the site.

The hosting company is trying to get the specialist blog on-line again this evening. Alex Wilks, site editor questioned: "Could this be a final act of aggression carried out by Wolfowitz's people while he is in public office? We will post further information on the site once it is back on-line".

He continued: "The site will also publish the full low-down on the deal which is likely to accompany the Wolfowitz departure. And of course be there to track the process and outcome of who will succeed him".

The beauty of the internet is that while it is unfortunate that one site has been attacked, others remain up and news flows....

Please post an appeal to other sites to mirror the worldbankpresident.org contents.

worldbankpresident.org is back up now with some new posts and all previous content. Just some graphics missing.

Much as I love and support WPB please put me down as very dubious that this was a genuine denial of service!

Read this again: "The site's hosting company says that the pattern of activity is suspicious, almost certainly a so-called 'denial of service' attack."

Yeah. Well. A real denial if service ain't just iffy. It is ABSOLUTELY UNMISTAKEABLE. Dozens of hits every second to tie the server up and keep new readers out.

Daily Kos has huge server capacity and bandwidth, and yet it has gone off the air on election nights more than a few times. Just too many readers trying to get in.

Same with Senator Lieberman. He claimed his opponent hit him with a denial of service. Go google that one!

Tip: Alex should upgrade his hosting contract beyond the $2:95 package for these special occasions!

Of course it was a denial of service attack - in fact it was executed perfectly. The only problem is that it achieved the opposite effect. Now people are even more interested, and WBP.org will get more exposure from people talking about it (such as this site). Serendipitous, isn't it.

I don't think it was a DOS attack. Interest in the issue was at an alltime high and high traffic is the more likely culprit, imho.

Wolf and his pals are doofuses with regard to computer stuff, they just don't know anything about it, they don't know anyone who knows (wouldn't make good cocktail party guests) and probably still don't know the worth of the Internet. My money's on high traffic - not that they wouldn't do this if they could, they just don't know any computer guys to do it.
