Twitter has been down most of this morning all over the world because, it says, of a denial of service (DOS) attack. Is it payback for Twitter's attempts at fighting malware?

Indeed, given the magnitude of the attack, it wouldn't be at all surprising if this turned out to be payback by cyber-thugs for Twitter's recent moves to thwart malware and links to malicious sites.

And this is bigger than just Twitter. The outage is also affecting users who have their Twitter accounts linked to Facebook, preventing them from updating their pages, and affects companies that use Facebook to interact with customers.      [Information Week...]   [Comments...]
