McAfee Magic under DoS attack just a day after launching

Just yesterday Chepicap reported that John McAfee had opened a new trading platform, named McAfee Magic, that would allow for traders to access multiple exchanges from just one interface. Now, the site is seeing a major Denial of Service (DoS) attack, though according to McAfee it is being sorted out and should be over soon.

It all began with the above tweet. It seems it took very little time for someone to begin targeting McAfee's new platform. As the hours progressed, new information came to light:

Severl hours later McAfee updates again, this time saying the source of the attack had "moved" (switched IP's) but that the Amazon Web Services (AWS) servers were "learning" the attack:

The latest from McAfee is that the site is now 80% operational, with full 100% expected soon:

Will this be the end of troubles for McAfee's new platform? Or is it only the beginning? Stick with Chepicap for all updates!
