For five hours, Zhytomyr.Info was under hacker attack

24.12.2013, 18:20

On December 17, a five-hour DDoS-attack against the web-site Zhytomyr.Info took place, the website informs. The site was down during this entire time.

The media outlet’s editors were publishing news on their official pages in social networks.

“We assume that the attack against the website is due to us publishing the news about the Maidan rally, news about beaten activists, and damage to Zhytomyr residents’ cars for helping the pro-European rally. We also published news on the Party of Regions’ paid rallies and their local hired goons», the Zhytomyr.Info’s editorial office commented. The website was also broadcasting live streams from the local pro-European rally and actions of the activists, who picketed the law enforcement agencies.

Presently, the DDoS-attack is neutralized, and specialists work on bringing the website back into operation.
