    Exclamation morpheus under DDoS attack

    hello. just found an article released about the problems with morpheus. everyone knows by now that they are down and switching to a service based on gnutella protocol. it turns out however that all the problems lately have been caused by a massive DDoS attack. perhaps this attack was sponsored by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)? this does not seem to be the normal workings of script kiddies.

    Here is an interesting little tidbit off of the MusicCity.com web site...

    Since it appears that the attack on your computers came from the closed proprietary FastTrack-Kazaa software, we have opted not to continue with this p2p kernel. We believe it to have the ability to access your computer at will and change registry settings. In addition, we remain committed to NOT bundling any spy ware with our product.

    We are pleased to migrate to an open Protocol product with the release of Morpheus Preview Edition, which is based on the very large network of Gnutella users.


    This could get interesting...

    Here's another explanation for Morpheus' problems:

    Morpheus' downfall: Bills weren't paid

    "MusicCity (also known as StreamCast Networks) has failed to pay any amounts due to Kazaa BV under the parties' license agreement," Kazaa BV founder Niklas Zennstrom wrote in an e-mail to CNET News.com. "As a result of MusicCity's breach, Kazaa BV did not provide version 1.5 to MusicCity. Kazaa has also terminated MusicCity's license."
    Cheers,
