A) I don't think anyone knows who UL is by that reference alone (I assume 
   you mean united layer).

B) The DoS target is Livejournal.

C) As an upstream of an upstream of LJ I'm barely seeing 150Mbps or so of 
   it. No indications of exactly how big it is by the time it hits them, 
   but at least from my perspective it doesn't seem like a huge attack.

Hope it stops soon though, a sustained livejournal outage is probably 
grounds for at least 4-5 suicides by distraught teenagers who can't blog 
about their day. :)
