The Dutchman Attacks
According to an article in InformationWeek, 180 Solutions was the victim of a Denial of Service (DoS) attack back in September.

Noted adware supplier 180solutions said Thursday that it was the target of an alleged denial-of-service (DoS) extortion attempt by one of its own distributors, a Dutchman who, with help from two others, created a botnet of some 1.5 million machines.
