    Considering how Amazon has become known for caving to the slightest pressure from law enforcement or even just a nosy senator [], to host such an attack from EC2 seems extraordinarily stupid.

    It would make much more sense to launch it from somewhere hosted by a company that doesn't have a reputation for giving up their customer's data and shutting down even legitimate stuff that happens to run afoul of their vague guidelines.

    Wait a minute... Amazon's cloud crashed 4/21, the day after Sony realized they'd been pwned and took down PSN.

    Is there something Amazon isn't saying, like maybe they were pwned too??
