It's been a while since Lawfare was the subject of denial of service attacks. And we hope you didn't even notice the one we had yesterday evening. According to our tech folks, "Lawfare was subject to a denial of service attempt ostensibly stemming from machines in Latvia masquerading as googlebot crawlers. This doesn't tell us much since the threat could have been originating from anyplace and just routed through Latvia to mask IPs."

In any event, we experienced a brief disruption, and you might have noticed speed issues on the site as we managed it.

I have no idea who's after us these days, but I hope the attack didn't inconvenience any readers. And our apologies if it did.
