Just as a side note, I think it's worth noting that it's quite possible 
to have such an attack by accident e.g. through large numbers of worms 
spreading round. That is, DOS attacks can be unintentional in that they 
weren't directed deliberately at a specific site.
Is all the traffic http, or do you have any idea what kind of patterns 
it matches?
It may just be uber-popularity :-)
