Has the bbc blocked pings to bbc.co.uk? Been working fine for years. Anyone confirm?

Can't blame them really.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Whether its linked to the apparent DDOS attack that happened recently who knows. maybe they just blocked any unwanted traffic

That's not their actual network though.

46.23.67.190 belongs to UK2. Going by the content on 46.23.67.190, it is some kind of proxy to view BBC content out of the country and it's getting redirected there so not actually the BBC network or servers.

BBC's own IP space does not seem to respond currently.

The Beeb was getting DDoS'd last night. To try and defend against this they've been using a bunch of content delivery networks, alongside using DDoS protection services which have ended up with pings being blocked.

I've seen Verisign and Akamai being used so far. Little point in them responding to pings if traffic is being diverted elsewhere to be scrubbed, misleading result.

Blame the asshats who took the BBC off the Internet for a second time in 10 days yesterday and forced them to get serious on DDoS protection.

When did you run that tracert? It just gives up for me as soon as it leaves my ISP.

Ah. Thanks.

Perhaps similar on a Dell, but too tired now to apply brain.
