Anyone having problems this morning accessing most websites out side the portal? i keep getting pages not found.

Looks like PlusNet DNS problem again.

It's not a DNS issue though.

I too cannot access most sites - both UK and US ones.

No notice on the Service Support pages ...

I don't think this is purely a PlusNet problem, as a lot of friends are saying there connections are very slow and they are on a mixture of ISP's

There is a *massive* Microsoft SQL Server attack going on all over the internet due to a worm which became active last night sometime. Last I heard they were calling it W32/SQLSlammer. It's causing congestion and massive packet loss on quite a lot of networks around the world as the worm tries to propogate itself.

To put it into perspective a *single* infected machine (I hate customers who dont patch their boxes!) was using 6.4mb of bandwidth... for about 20 minutes until I pulled the plug Wink

That's the one. A right little pain in the rear it is too. Took down most of South Korea's internet backbone, and is giving those nice people at Microsoft a major headache too (serves 'em right - if they'd tested the code properly, this wouldn't have happened). The worm's only 376 bytes long too - amazing how something as small as that can caise so much grief. The most annoying thing is that this vulnerability's been known about since last July, yet there are still loads of unpatched servers out there for this little blighter to attack.
