Apparently the entire BBC with all associated websites has been brought down by a massive DDos attack. Bits and pieces are coming back now but it is still patchy. Just in case anyone wonders what is going on.

I followed a link to BBC.com and just got dns error. I tried several times with different links, also iplayer and BBC news. After some time I was able to get to BBC.COM and UK but not all sites. I did a search and found an Independent article about the attack. I kept checking the BBC sites and gradually they started coming back. Maybe everything is up again.

 

Edit: Just tried again and got a 404 error.

There is definitely something going on here but the article I saw turned out to be an old one and is not relevant. This may be related to my DNS proxy. Not sure but I still can't get through to some BBC sites.

Yeah OK, I clicked on BBC One and got a DNS error and now can't get News stream back.

Looks like an issue with my DNS. I disabled it and BBS sites worked normally. When I first encountered the problem I did a quick search for 'BBC down' and jumped on the first result that popped up without checking the date. My bad. As you were.
