Okay, so apparently it was a DDOS attack.
Bunch of dorks.
Or.. dork.
I don't know how this stuff works. Whatever.

Also, we kinda know what the ghast looks like now 'cause Notch apparently went and posted a teaser on /v/.

Is it bad that the first thing I thought was that the wood shouldn't be so close to lava because it would burn?

Actually it was bad because it was Hotlinked.

Apparently some stupid asshat is ddosing minecraft over the fact of there being a lack of updates.

Minecraft.net is still down, unfortunately.
You can probably find me, if you have pesterchum, under burningOrigins or cantankerousZealot.

If you read Notch's latest blog post, it's working too, since Notch is back to coding.

Didero, you realize he has BEEN coding right? This isn't working at all, he said he will update on Halloween so wtf do these guys want? A piss ass update?

Self entitled ass holes, they don't deserve the internet.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

If I was Notch I would say screw updates for another month to make a point.

I think he meant back to coding as in I was coding and some stupid idiots attacked my site but now I got some other people to fix it so I can continue to code.

Oh, I know he's been coding, but apparently not everybody does. And with a blog post like that, he makes it appear as though he hasn't done too much coding lately, and that he's giving in to the 'demands' of the attackers.

Attacking his site is still a stupid thing to do though.

He didn't even know why the attack was happening at that point, it even says so in that post you linked to.

I'm refering to this quote from notchs blog, Didero seemed to miss the first part;

As to why minecraft.net is being targeted, Im not sure.

While the guys hosting my server are looking into things, Ill get back to coding.

Honestly, I was wondering when someone was going to get around to doing this.

EDIT: Also, don't be too hasty in believing the claim kotaku quoted. As you know, it was made on 4chan, which is an anonymous imageboard.
Anybody can say anything they want. I know we all probably want someone to be held responsible for this douchebaggery, but that doesn't mean you can reasonably buy into a claim that can just as easily be false as it can be true.
