Stock Patrol "Overwhelmed"

The Register reports that in mid-January, stock-fraud investigation site StockPatrol disappeared from the internet, overwhelmed by a massive flood of web requests coming from thousands of sources.

The attack reportedly came after the site wrote a handful of reports investigating and condemning the practice of pump-and-dump stock spam campaigns. No fewer than three botnets targeted StockPatrol, as well as another anti-spam site, and at least five command-and-control servers associated with a different virus, Warezov, according to an analysis released last week.
