(Lindon, Utah-AP) -- Can't get onto the Web site for SCO Group? You're not alone.

The company says the site was hacked early this morning and the problems have persisted all day.

The Lindon-based company says the attack was coordinated to have several thousand servers hit Web site all at the same time.

SCO is the owner of the Unix operating system. The attack is denying people access to the site to download software or program patches, or to get customer service.

The Web site normally gets several hundred thousand hits a day.

It's the third time this year the site has been brought down by such a coordinated attack. The earlier hits came in March and June.

Each lasted about 24 hours.
