Steven over at Shadowserver is reporting on a Distributed Denial of Service attack against the website of President Mikhail Saakashvili of Georgia (www.president.gov.ge)

Check your logs for activity heading towards the target www.president.gov.ge (62.168.168.9) or the command and control server (207.10.234.244) which may indicate that you have compromised systems on your network.

UPDATE: Jose at ARBOR Networks has more one the actual political motivations behind the attack here: http://asert.arbornetworks.com/2008/07/georgia-on-my-mind-political-ddos/
