Beeb-ception: BBC reports on BBC tweet about BBC websites DDoS

Auntie hasn't confirmed, says Beeb

By Jude Karabus, 31 Dec 2015

The BBC has reported that the BBC has tweeted that all the BBC's websites were knocked offline this morning due to "technical issues" now confirmed to be down to a "large web attack".

Nevertheless, the BBC did not "confirm or deny" the BBC's inquiries regarding whether a distributed denial-of-service attack was responsible for the BBC's problems, but the BBC coyly noted that information had "emerged" from "sources within the BBC" confirming the sites were offline due to a DDoS. Wonder how that worked. ®
