DOS attack breaches Pentagon

Anyone been having trouble with some websites lately?  It appears a large DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack is going on.  I hear that AOL and Intel’s websites were defaced and I just found this article:
"Hackers have forced the Pentagon to shut down a large number of computers by penetrating parts of the security system.

Reports suggested that 1,500 computers were taken offline, but the US Department of Defense said it could not confirm how many computers were affected. " ~ link

It’s been an irritant to me because one of the hosts I use (and I use with my clients) is, and they are one of the networks under attack.  This has kept my programmers-portal down and up and down since last evening.

It wasn’t getting defaced this time! (whew)
