Today's DDoS Attacks Due to Cyber Warfare?

micro_worlds I am sure that most of you are aware of today’s attack against Twitter.  The attack crippled the service for a good portion of the day.  News is coming out now about the attack, and according to an article by The New York Times the attack could be related to cyber warfare.  The article cites Bill Woodcock, an expert in this area, who believes the attack was a result of the conflict between Russia and Georgia.  Woodcock stated the attack was not like a normal DDoS attack, as these attacks were using spam emails to overwhelm the service.  Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come.
