Slashdot, Cryptome down for the count...

Posted by: Doug Hudson on Friday May 12, @09:32AM

Well, Wired is reporting [0] that Slashdot [1] was DDoD'd yesterday soon
after the Microsoft story was posted, and this morning John Young's
Cryptome [2] site, which had an archive of the DVD cases, has completely
disappeared, along with Young's web site.

Cryptome was threatened by the MPAA for posting trial documents that
contained MPAA "trade secrets". Cryptome was also threatened by the British
government for posting "secret" documents on the web, for which the British
government claimed a (questionable) copyright interest. Does anyone know
what happened? Was Cryptome shut out by a DMCA copyright notice to its ISP?
Does anyone know the status of Slashdot?
