Louderback: MediaDefender Caused Revision3’s Temporary Shutdown

By Sergio Published on .

Revision3 CEO Jim Louderback said MediaDefender, an ArtistDirect subsidiary formed to fight peer-to-peer piracy, caused the Web video studio’s server and site to shut down over the Memorial Day weekend through a denial of service attack, TVWeek.com reports. In a blog post on Revision3’s site, Louderback said Revision3’s BitTorrent server was flooded with SYN packets of data, which caused the server, along with the site and the company’s e-mail, to shut down through Tuesday. Revision3 uses BitTorrent legally to distribute its own video content, including Web video series “Diggnation” and “Tekzilla.”
