AnimeSuki shut down by host after continued denial of service attacks

One of the larger, and more popular providers of digital fansubs via bittorrent, AnimeSuki, has been shut down by their service provider after repeated Denial of Service attacks. According to their website, they were able to shrug off most of the attacks, and many visitors to the site, as well as users of the service, probably never noticed them.

However apparently the service provider did, and after a while decided that it wasn't worth hosting a site continually under attack, so they pulled the plug on AnimeSuki's server.

No one is known to have claimed responsability for the attacks.

AnimeSuki is working on re-establishing itself with another provider.
