Mortal Coil Blog affected by attack on Posterous


Overnight, the Mortal Coil Blog, like every other site on Posterous, was the victim of a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack against Posterous, the service which hosts this blog. The attack is continuing, but Posterous responded by changing its IP address to a different subnet and I had to follow suit by changing my DNS records as well. Which is pretty easy to do in real life, but not something I was expecting to have to do based on a hacker attack.
