Michelle Malkin Site Under Cyberattack (UPDATED)

Michelle Malkin's website was down for most of the morning, presumably due to a Denial of Service attack from hackers. The site was back up as of around 10:30, when Malkin posted, noting that the FBI had been informed of the attack.

In an update posted at Pajamas Media, where Malkin rode out the attack, she notes that investigators have confirmed a DoS attack, apparently originating in Turkey.

In an update to the post on her website, Malkin writes that a DoS attack has been confirmed, with the attacks coming from IPs mostly belonging to TurkTelecom. Source addresses for the attack are being shifted, indicating a fairly sophisticated operation. the TurkTelecom homepage itself is down at the moment.
