Grid Attack 03-10-06

Another day, another grid attack. I don't have much on it, other then what is posted on the Linden blog.
"Mick Linden: The Second Life grid has been restricted to Linden-only logins whilst we address a replication attack. Our technicians appear to have the situation well in hand and we hope to reopen logins shortly. We apologise for the inconvenience."
"Jean Linden:We are aware of a potential grid attack that occured at 19:55 PDT and we are currently investigating the issues. We will keep you updated with more information as soon as possible. Login will open again very soon, sorry for any inconvenience."
Will follow up when my more news become available.

9:15pm PDT

quote from IRC:
"kageseraf:Same message, plus some sort of "fag finder" device that apparently calls everyone in the sim a fag.
kageseraf:quite similar to yesterday's attack, if not the same indeed"
And Kage made also a bloghud post.
"The spammy "Terror will rain down upon the unfit gods and the flock that they govern, from now until the End of Days." thing is back, apparently made by a Katamari Kyger alt created yesterday."
Fun times. :(

9:26pm PDT
"[21:25] Mick Linden: Hi folks, logins have now been reopened. Thanks for your patience whilst we addressed some issues resulting from a grid attack. Please refer to blog.secondlife.com for additional details. "
Looks like this one was contained much quicker.
