I’m sure many of you have used the Internet Archive at some point in your lives and it does have a lot of very cool and useful things to browse through. Now, according to the Internet Archive X account, the website has been under a massive DDoS attack since this afternoon. The attack is ongoing, with the site going down for some but remaining visible to others.

The X account for the website posted the following:

Sorry to say, is under a ddos attack. The data is not affected, but most services are unavailable.

We are working on it. This thread will have updates.

up again.

This has been a back and forth with the attackers. We have made some adjustments, but geez.

at least, Happy Memorial Day!

From X

For now, the organization is doing its best to cope with the attack and there is no sign of it stopping yet. It’s not clear as to why the attack is happening, but if we get any news, we will update.
