This is a DOS attack originating in Saudi Arabia. An interesting part of the statement released by Hosting Matters:

"Recovery on all segments except that target segment is complete. The target of the attack will not be brought back online and will be removed from the main network in the event they are the target of future attacks, so as not to negatively impact other clients."

(via Michelle Malkin)

How long before those blogs which are offensive to the jihadis start having difficulty finding host networks? And what - if anything - are Western governments doing to bring pressure on the Saudis to take these cyberthugs offline?
