Web server Hosting Matters under attack

I saw Little Green Footballs' story on the Pajamas site earlier today. It appears the web server Hosting Matters is under attack by hackers from Saudi Arabia. The first wave came this afternoon, and there appears to be a second assault this evening.

What they've apparently succeeded with is a denial of service attack.

Powerline and Captain's Quarters have been afflicted, according to LGF. I noticed that Instapundit is down, and Wizbang is reporting the Hugh Hewitt site is off line.

Saudi Arabia. Surprised? You shouldn't be.

UPDATE 9:05PM CDT: For now, at least, the sites are back up.

UPDATE 11:15PM CDT: Ed Driscoll's site is down. I've been trying to access it for 15 minutes.
