TorrentBytes Downed by Hackers

By Richard Menta 6/18/07 has another scoop this month as they are the first to report that TorrentBytes is the target of a line of DDoS attacks that is keeping the site offline. Returning from a 5-day downtime on June 16th the staff commented that the site was up and there was no damage to report. "The DB is intact and the site files were restored to a recent backup, so the site should be almost fully functional by now."

Unfortunately, the site was brought down again the following day and as TorrentBytes admin JEFFSR told Slyck this time they wiped the drive. So far the source of that attacks are unknown. Slyck has the details here.
