24+ hours and counting and the Lieberman website is still not functioning. There is no way restoring the site should be taking this long. This is either incompetence of staggering proportions, or they are milking this issue for all the news value its worth...
Matt Stoller at MyDD has an interesting post up questioning the press reports that there actually was a hacking, or if it was in fact just a bandwidth issue (either way, the messaging that appeared on their site seemed to be an automatic message that would appear with a bandwidth issue or a DoS attack).
robzr at DailyKos has a great (and technical - beware) post explaining the security (or lack thereof) that the site employed (Hat tip to Charles Gaba in the comments. Charles, please email me if you see this - gaber205 at aol dot com - thanks).
Also, to the claim that the Lieberman campaign, specifically Sean Smith, has made that they have no ability to send and receive email since the attack, I have an email sent from the Lieberman campaign this morning that would seem to give lie to that.
MeetNed.com, infamously introduced by turfgrrl, is hosted by the same server as joe2006.com with the same IP address, and is up and running. If there was a DoS attack, that site should be down.
Lamont Internet Communication Director Tim Tagaris is on Colin, making the some of the points above and Colin mentioned that he received an email from Dan Gerstein claiming that they had no email access. Zing. Check the archives...
UPDATE: Via Ned Lamont's site, the Google cache of joe2006.com is available (the cache site is not perfect, but should be able to be used to get the site back up and running). There is no reason they could not have had the site back up by (last) midnight. Well, none that does not involve the news cycle.
