Cyber attack on Georgia: from servers inside the US

Before the Gunfire, Cyberattacks
Researchers at Shadowserver, a volunteer group that tracks malicious network activity, reported that the Web site of the Georgian president, Mikheil Saakashvili, had been rendered inoperable for 24 hours by multiple D.D.O.S. attacks. They said the command and control server that directed the attack was based in the United States and had come online several weeks before it began the assault.

Precisely where in the US?

The two most hijacked and bot infested server farms in the United States - The Planet and RackSpace...

God I hate them. They are so slack on their security that the bots are running wild and launching attacks from compromised web sites on their servers.
