Hackers Attack Czech News Sites
Servers suffer massive DDos efforts
Hackers attacked several top Czech news websites on Monday, overloading them with hundreds of thousands of requests per second to make them inaccessible, publishers said.
"News servers have been facing a massive DDos (Distributed Denial of Service) attack since 8:30 am (0730 GMT)," iDNES.cz, the website of the top-selling Czech broadsheet DNES, said on its Facebook profile.
"Servers are flooded with hundreds of thousands of nonsensical requests and their response speed decreases," it added.
