Default PayPal & Twitter under DDOS attacks.

It's happening right now. I can see it from my home IP and from my VPN also.

How many can not connect to PayPal/Twitter now?

It's not PayPal getting took down, it's the domain registrar called 'dyn' that's getting attacked. That's why it's effecting multiple websites.

Yea, I can't access Paypal either. Needed to print off some shipping labels, but guess that will wait until later.

Ah, apparently I posted in the wrong thread.

It's not just Paypal and Twatter. Check out the homepage of downdetector.com. Google, Amazon, Ebay, Paypal, and it seems like the majority of other major websites have been impacted by this. Someone on downdetector is saying it's being caused by internet outages in California.. but who knows. Maybe a massive DDOS caused the internet to go out in Silicone Valley.

I was just about to post a thread regarding this as well as a quick solution for those affected.

Here is an article of what has happened: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...-a7374506.html

Solution to getting back on to PayPal and eBay - Try to use a different ISP, VPN or Mobile Network Provider. Some are working, other's not so much as of yet. It may be that some are restoring services quicker than others.

Suggestion on breakfast TV this morning wikkileaks supporters behind it possibly. Just been looking on Facebook and it had problems 3 times and had to reload itself, maybe it is fighting off attacks as well, message just said it was having issues and had to reload.
