Network Solutions Fights Off Multiple DDoS Attacks:

Two attacks on consecutive days left Web host and domain name registry Network Solutions' customers unable to access their Web sites and servers.
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack was carried out against Network Solutions on yesterday afternoon, and again this morning, according to a post on the company's official blog by spokesman Shashi Bellamkonda.
"Our engineers worked quickly to mitigate the attacks and services are in the process of being restored," he wrote. "We continue to monitor this situation, as potential risk still exists for these attacks to recur."
Some customers complained of outages and said they could not reach the sites hosted by Network Solutions, and were having trouble accessing their e-mail and reaching their servers as of Tuesday afternoon. The company's Twitter feed was still saying that employees were working on bringing its network back online.
