DoS (Denial of Service Attack) done to Revision3

Revision3 was dealt a DoS (Denial of Service Attack) this weekend and they were able to find out who it was and are now taking the appropriate steps to counter lost profit, time, resources.  The FBI is involved now and because it was done on US Soil and by a USA based company it is a serious offense.  Denial-of-service attacks are considered violations of the IAB‘s Internet proper use policy.  They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations.
