On Thursday, Pastebin.com was hit by the second DDoS attack in a single week.

"The site was previously taken offline for a portion of the day on Tuesday, though no motives or culprits for that attack have been named yet," writes Threatpost's Christopher Brook.

"A post to the service’s Twitter account (@pastebin) around 1:30 p.m. acknowledged the attack: 'Pastebin is under DDOS attack again guys, working on it...'" Brook writes.
