Pakistan government orders ISP service level agreement
Pakistan has been suffering a 40 day DOS attack, disrupting most of the International Internet service in the country. The Pakistan Government, Minister for IT & Telecom, has "directed" the Pakistan Telecommunications Corporation to sign service level agreements to ensure 99% Internet availability. Over 200 official(government?) websites have been inaccessible for over three weeks. http://www.paknews.com/main.php?id=5&date1=2003-05-05 "Within a period of five days, the body has been assigned to formulate a concrete strategy to stem the incidence of DoS attacks.. The committee will work on urgent basis and suggest short-term measures within two day."
