Various people have been reporting a DoS against Sys-Con, the publisher of LinuxWorld, possibly due to something that happened this week. It does in fact appear that there was and is an ongoing DoS against Sys-Con sites.
Of course, the fact that there is a DoS doesn’t prove a correlation between the events of this week and the DoS. There certainly is no evidence that the OSS community is behind it. It could very well be anyone, including people who had their stories removed from the Sys-Con sites this week.
