Phoenix Server was effected by a Distributed Denial Of Service Attack!

Today I´ve got this Group Notice out of the Phoenix Support Group:

Group Notice From: Phoenix Viewer Support

It looks like our server was effected by a Distributed Denial Of Service Attack at some point over night. This attack seems to have been effecting thousands of servers across the Internet. We have reset the server now and it seems to be back up and running ok. If you logged in during that time, and were unable to see the login screen graphic, you may want to relog now to get your viewer set up again with viewer tag colors etc. Sorry for the inconvenience.

So this gives me a reason for speculation. Who could have interest to DoS-Attack the Phoenix Viewer? I mean… after all the Emerald Drama I only can think in one direction. Maybe peoples who are now banned from Second Life and maybe because they are still pissed that a similar Viewer called Phoenix Viewer stays alive? Anyhow I only can imagine that Arabella Steadham´s DramaTeam was behind the DoS-Attack. But its only my guess. Im not sure about this.

However.. seems that everything is ok now. But it gives reasons for speculation or?

    Well Emerald was the first thought to enter my mind as well. I don’t distrust Steadham near as much as I distrust Ph0x though. Steadham’s not a coder; she’s just a mouthpiece.

  2. Yea if soo.. then you are right with PhOx as he´s coder. Right.

    Maybe they heck out new plans together and then one person do the job.

    I just can think one of the banned guys. Dunno.
