Wikipedia, World of Warcraft Downed By Weekend DDoS Attacks

This article discusses yet another series of DDOS attacks targeting well known websites.  Based on the article, these DDOS attacks are an example of a hacking group trying to validate skills and work toward larger attacks which will in turn inspire other attacks against new targets by other new hacking groups.  This is a systemic problem that will continue to grow and plague businesses and organizations worldwide.

It is important to consider the potential damage that can be caused by a DDOS attack and how your organization would remediate or mitigate such an attack.
