Rootkit web sites fall to DDOS attack
Two prominent Web sites that specialize in remote access software known as "rootkits" have been taken offline by a large distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack. The take-down was allegedly ordered by a shadowy group of hackers and rootkit authors who took offense to criticisms of their software posted on the sites.
Rootkit.com, an established Web site run by security expert Greg Hoglund, has been offline for almost a week.
