According to Internet researcher Netcraft, SCO, the victim of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack from the Mydoom Trojan over the weekend and this morning, has removed its website from the DNS records. Netcraft called it 'the public-spirited thing' to do. This means that there will be no more http traffic travelling across the Internet from the infected machines to www.sco.com, said Netcraft. A Netcraft spokesman continued: "The hostmaster's plan was set the TTL to 60 seconds to give himself the flexibility of having changes propagate promptly, and then see what the http traffic was like before making a decision to remove the site from the DNS. He has now decided that he has seen enough. SCO may also have been the subject of pressure from ISPs to put a stop to the http traffic." SCO's share price was down to $14.37 on Friday last, down from its high last week of over $15.50.
