Tiscali UK is prepared to take legal action against those behind yesterday's "external attack" that knocked out the ISP.

A spokeswoman for the company told The Register: "If we can identify who the people are behind this then we will pursue prosecution."

The comments come as Tiscali UK is continuing to investigate the incident that downed its portal yesterday and created havoc for its users.

The ISP has so far declined to give any more details about the incident but has described it as a "sustained" denial of service attack.

In its latest update the ISP reports that service has been "fully restored" for its broadband and dial-up customers.

Said the ISP: "Tiscali has now fully restored the service to its broadband and dial-up customers as well as portal access for visitors. There has been a sustained 'denial of service attack', which is now under control.

"However, e-mail is currently not available to customers not dialing through Tiscali. This is a temporary measure to protect the service availability for our dial-up and broadband customers," it said
