Amazon Websites Outage Due to Hardware Failure

Monday Dec 13th 2010 by Staff

The company says the half hour outage in Europe wasn't due to a denial-of-service attack.

Reuters: Over the weekend, Amazon's European Web sites experienced a half hour outage. Some speculated that the problem was caused by denial-of-service attacks from supporters of WikiLeaks, but the company says that isn't so.

"The brief interruption to our European retail sites earlier today was due to hardware failure in our European datacenter network and not the result of a DDOS attempt," said a company spokesperson.
