In this case, I would say it might not actually be zf0. Only becasue I know Iran and China have tried to block people from posting about human right violations and all the stuff surrounding Irans recent election, its probably something related to that. We'll have to wait and see if zf0 come out and claim responsibility though, because they are more about defacements and deletions of sites than they are about DDoS's.

edit: maybe its related to the toilet :)

Not zf0. It was the Russian's. Not seriously it was the Russians. http://gizmodo.com/5331983/ddos-attack-aga...uys-livejournal

Gizmodo was getting DDoS'ed the other day as well though. In fact, several of their blogs were.

zf0 could be from any country though, as they are not a centralized group in one location, but just people from aroudn the net who post in the zine. I doubt it was zf0 though, and is a reminder, no site is safe from people with resources to do such a thing. Only way to block these is if they are all on one subnet or from one contries subnet, and you get the core internet routers to block their ip subnets. You also then cripple legitamate communications with that part of the world, so there is no viable solution other than at the local level to block the subnets at your firewall and outside routers.

Is it really much of a problem, that people stopped posting every time they take a s**t.

I think this about sums it up: http://www.brainofshawn.com/2009/08/06/twitter-is-down/

On a more serious note, Twitter was built from a crap framework that wasn't built to handle the scalability requirements that Twitter has, so ever upgrade to the system is some kludge to fix a problem with the last kludge. Someone could sneeze in the server room and take down twitter.
