Add Buy.Com to the list of sites getting hit by Denial Of Sevice Attacks lately. The site went down just as they were getting extra traffic because they just released their IPO, good timing...or I should say bad timing.

Today UCLA once again got hit with ICMP DoS attacks that saturated the DS3 line running out from campus. If MetaFilter seemed unreachable around 4-6pm PST today, that was it.

Heck, maybe buy.com noticed Yahoo!'s stock going up when they were DOS'd... nah. Too outlandish.
