Microsoft was quick to point out that the DoS attack had
nothing to do with Wednesday’s and Thursday’s Web site outages, which were a
result of DNS problems.
Microsoft.com and MSN.com were the sites reported to have
been hit by the attack.
In the statement, Microsoft said it had contacted the FBI
and had taken “immediate steps” to bring the sites back online. – Isaac Slepner
