This is a cop out. I don't believe they folded just because of one DDoS attack.
What did they do to try to mitigate it?
I believe there is a fair few anti-DDoS devices that will scrub/filter traffic.
I also believe that there is providers that will provide these sorts of servers. As if an SP that specializing in protection from DDoS could not figure out how to mitigate this attack.

They are a technology company that is meant to fight SPAM... I would think that they wouldn't just fold at the first fight.

My 2 cents.

All this will do is give all the other scumbag spammers out there proof
that using these tactics will work, and they will be able to extort
anyone.

Who will be next, Trend Micro? Fortinet? Symantec? SANS?
