DDoS attack from Russian hackers... again
To confirm my point of view regarding Russian hackers and their employers, read the article above.
The actions described in the article are clear demonstration of knowledge in cyber security used to suppress the web site of a defined enemy (in this case, Georgia - former USSR republic). There are no doubts in my mind that it was pre-designed by the Russian Government. ShadowServer.org mentioned that there is no proof that the Russian Government was behind that attack. However, ask yourself why would you try to suppress the Georgian President's web site unless it's your enemy's web site?
As you can see, when the war began, all weapons in your dispositions are used. The cyber hacking or DoS attacks are the new battlefields, and it must be taken seriously.
