    DoubleClick service overwhelmed

    DoubleClick said its network that serves companies' online advertising was hobbled Tuesday as a result of a "denial of service" attack.

    DoubleClick said that its infrastructure came under attack from outside sources early Tuesday. In a denial of service attack, a program floods a computer network with data-transaction requests, overwhelming its systems.

    "The attack caused severe service disruption for many of our ad-serving customers," a spokeswoman for DoubleClick said. "The situation has improved over the last few hours and we continue to take steps to resolve the situation permanently."

    Just the same computer virus that spoiled Google's opening day IPO stock auction with a temp outage.
