This morning's outage, maybe 15 minutes in length, came to us courtesy of the RIPE network in Amsterdam. The specific URL requests seemed somewhat ordinary, but there were numerous attempts to post replies (they weren't logged in). The requests were sufficiently voluminous to require automation and constitute a DOS attack. The IP was 62.210.188.165 if someone's curious enough to investigate further.
