    If you are like me and wondering why you cant get the the LR website, here is the reason. This is from the Liberty Reserve Blog.

    Possible outages in some areas.
    We are experiencing a sophisticated DDOS attack. We, together with Prolexic, were able to successfully mitigate the attack, although some users might still have problems accessing our web site. We are working hard to make sure everyone will be able to access our web site.

    This same attack hit register.com days ago. I was notified of an almost exact message. Luckily my domain didn't go down...

    Makes me wonder if confiker is behind this. I mean you must be massive to take out a DNS provider or other huge businesses.

    This could be a beginning... hmm.

    I never said it was confiker... Just resembles it. In it's large scale network attack capabilities.
