Internet slow down?

  Forum Editor 18:59 25 Jan 2003

From about 05:20 this morning a known vulnerability in Microsoft SQL server systems was being targeted by a hybrid worm that combines a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) with the automated propagation techniques used by worms such as Code Red.

This has tended to result in a general slowing of the Internet as a whole, so please be patient if you have experienced any difficulties with web site access - as far as I know forum members have not being having undue problems.

I noticed that too, over the last couple of days been pretty slow on NTL, but thats been due to upgrading, I think.

Thanks FE.

I don't know if this is related but this evening this site (not others I've tried) is really slow to load in Opera but is OK in IE6 - normally it is the other way round!
