The opennic servers aren't being attacked, just linode in general.  As for what kind of ddos protection they have in place... I wouldn't know?

about what is happening, but there has been a sustained ddos attack 
against linode which of course affects servers they are hosting.  If 
anyone has more information, please share!

The servers page at along with the

available and working correctly.  If the attacks continue, I will
