Internet warning system attacked

Unknown attackers inundated the Computer Emergency Response Team
Coordination Center with data Wednesday, cutting off the public's access to
the organization largely responsible for warning others on the Internet
about computer-security threats. 

The attack began around 9 a.m. PDT Tuesday and continued to stall traffic to
the organization's Web site Wednesday. 

"Our connection to the Internet has been largely saturated by this
activity," Ian Finlay, an Internet security analyst for the CERT
Coordination Center, said in a recorded statement. "The www.cert.org Web
site may be unavailable until the attack begins to subside." 

Although the attack has prevented anyone from accessing the security
advisories on CERT's Web site, the Center said it will still be able to get
the word out on critical alerts. 

"We have alternate means to issue advisories as it becomes necessary,"
Finlay said in the statement.
