Spurl Hit With DoS Attack



I was researching Social Bookmarking services this morning and found that Spurl had suffered a Denial of Service attack.

This is what was on their website tonight:

We are currently forced to offer reduced functionality due to heavy spam attacks. The lists with New and Hot spurls are therefore disabled until further notice.
Our apologies for the inconvenience.


I get tired of the spammers attacking websites. It makes it harder for legitimate users. When stricter controls are enforced innocent people can get mislabeled as spammers.
