Pipex has been co-operating with Cisco and they believe they've put an end to DDoS attacks on their servers. What's interesting for me is that big gambling firms paid out rather than have their servers go down.

The fact that the cost of protecting against a DDoS attack costs almost as much (if not more) than the 'pay off'. I'm not that surprised.

Also I imagine gambling firms are more likely to be used to paying off gangsters... ;)
