www2.sco.com enjoys good response times

Further corroboration of the generally good connectivity across the Internet can be seen by viewing www2.sco.com. which is on the same Class C that www.sco.com occupied until earlier this evening. http://www2.sco.com/ loads very quickly to the eye, and the traceroute seems very good considering the circumstances.

A graph of performance of www2.sco.com has just started appearing. while a comparative table of performance of some of the sites connected with the MyDoom virus is also available. Each is updated every fifteen minutes.

Note that sco.com and caldera.com, which both shared the same ip address as www.sco.com are still down, possibly because of stale DNS caching, or perhaps simply because the machine that ran those sites has been shut down.

% host sco.com
sco.com has address 216.250.128.12
%host www.caldera.com
www.caldera.com has address 216.250.128.12

The most recent Web Server Survey found some 58 hostnames running web sites that resolved to this ip address, and one would presume that SCO is unconcerned about their availability, since it would have been possible to give www.sco.com its own ip address in the prelude to the DDoS.
