This is another selfreplication attack which also gives objects to avies nearby. Not only bringing our beloved grid down, but also clogging up our inventory.
Will update this post when more information becomes available:
"[18:27] Jack Linden: Login is currently 'Lindens Only' so if you log out, you won't get straight back in.6:42pm PDT
[18:27] Jack Linden: Just an FYI
[18:27] Jack Linden: We're removing the objects from the db."
"[18:39] Milo Linden: This grid will be closing shortly for some cleanup work, please keep checking http://blog.lindenlab.com for more information, thanks"And everyone was logged out at 6:40pm PDT.
After reading throught the concierge group chatlog from during the attack that, it looks like, the objects have multiple owners, random names, are invisible, follow avies and shouting "terror will rain down upon you".
Turning object creating on your land off didn't seem to work, but that might just seemed like that because they could have been flooding in from neigbouring plots.

"trapped here in Darkwood in the midst of a grid attack.."
Ed baron has a good picture of the chat spam.
The grid is back up and login is open.
"Jean Linden: Logins have been reopened. Please note - login may be slow when everyone tries to login at the same time.
Thank you for your patience!"
