Can't connect to Github only

Hi all.
A good part of this story is told in this question:

The problem is that suddenly I'm not more able to connect to the Github server: each call ends up with a timed out error. I tried to flush dns, to change the dns to google's ones, to sett all to automatic... Nothing to do.

Ping returns this:

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Request timed out.

Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

whereas nslookup returns this:

Unfortunately, Github is a too rich resource to leave it back: does someone have any idea?
Thanks to all in advance.

So it is ending with Vodafone

Hola, Gary. How did you understand it?
Looks like your trace fails at Vodafone's network. Good news, it's not your stuff. Bad news, it may be DDOS or some other issue that may be affecting Github. Their Twitter page mentioned at least 2 DDOS attacks against them this week, so it may be recurring.

Says everything's normal, but that was two days ago.
