Hi Steve,

No I do realize that what I suggested in my email was just a scenario
removed from the case at hand.  What I was suggesting though is that 1) if
the portals of distribution (http and ftp) were DDoS'd, say as a precursor
to exploitation of some other vulnerability.  I was not trying to suggest
that all means of communication were blocked and that this particular
instance was one of an opportunistic DDoS.  Sorry if I was unclear.
