Bezos DDoS'd: Amazon Web Services' DNS systems knackered by hours-long cyber-attack

The partial downtime started about 10 hours ago, or around 0900 US East Coast time, and AWS's DNS servers are still, at time of writing, under siege. This affects more than just S3: it will hamper any connections to Amazon services that rely on external DNS queries, such as the Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Simple Queue Service (SQS), CloudFront, Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). These are services countless sites and applications rely on to handle visitors and process customer information.
