The Internet is Down, Happy 4th of July

Just moments ago I mentioned that it looks like the iTunes App Store was hacked. Now reports are surfacing that YouTube and Wikipedia have been hacked as well. Just a note that I haven't been able to duplicate any of the problems with the websites mentioned above (thankfully) but others have. Obviously the first thing that comes to mind is this is a well-thought out attack and these reports cannot be isolated incidents.

Then again, Wikipedia just had this to say about their outage, "Thanks for being patient, everyone. We've figured out the problem: power outage in our Florida data center. Slowly coming back online!" It just goes to show you that sometimes a conspiracy theory may just be a theory. I am sure there is more to these stories and there will be additional information to report tomorrow.
