Poll: Have you ever been hit with a DoS attack?

Infuriated overseas gamers are launching constant attacks on Australian rivals

In recent weeks, it has come to light that frequent Denial of Service (DoS) revenge attacks are being launched by irate gamers toward their rivals.

According to Internode’s carrier relations manager, John Lindsay, overseas gamers constantly use their faster and larger Internet connections to disable the slower connections of their Australian rivals.

Here at Computerworld Australia we're wondering whether the whole DOS problem may not just be limited to irate gamers, so why not let us know just how common these attacks are?

And the results from last week’s poll are now in to the question: Do you think Government ICT policy will change before the next election?

Definitely, I think Labor will be trying to win votes anywhere it can 7%

Yes, I think there will be changes, but nothing overly significant 0%

I'm not sure 0%

No, I think Gillard will be aiming for an image of stability 42%

No, I think the Government is incapable of making any significant changes 51%
