Amazon in the United Kingdom is down, not only for those browsing in the UK but from any location. The website seems to be under a DDoS attack. We have no information if Anonymous is responsible but they might be behind it.
At this point no one knows. Anonymous took revenge last week against sites that kicked Wikileaks from using certain providers of services or providers that refused Wikileaks access to their services and payment systems. Visa, Mastercard, Paypal and a few others got attacked.
It was said that Amazon was also a target and a lot of people believed that Anonymous failed in taking down Amazon but they never did try to take down Amazon.com according to insiders and a press release from a Twitter account that appeared to be connected to Anonymous.
So, is Anonymous behind what looks like an attack on Amazon.co.uk?
Update: Amazon.de in Germany is down as well.
Update: Amazon.fr in France is down.
Update: Amazon.it is down, no Amazon for Italy tonight.
Update: Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.it and the rest are back online.
Update: Thus far Anonymous or those that appear to be part of Anonymous says they are not behind the attacks or downtime of the Amazon servers.
Update: It was not Anonymous, It was not attacks either it was Amazon’s hardware that malfunctioned.
