Blue Security Servers Attacked

Blue Security is my anti-spam srvice. It must be effective, because yesterday I noticed that things were going wrong with the spam reporting tool. Today, I visited their web site and found the following message:
Blue Security's servers are currently under attack.
Our staff is working around the clock to restore normal operation as soon as possible.
We are extremely happy to see the overwhelming level of support and global presence the Blue Community is showing.
Thank you for your patience!

I wish them the best of luck in dealing with their DDOS attack. Some spammer somewhere must be really unhappy. Either that or they have run out of Venture Capital and are hiding it well. I hope not. I'm not sure if I believe the story about the Russin spammer, but it makes interesting reading.
