New hacker attack paralyzes Jyllands-Posten
The web version of Jyllands-Posten is off-line. Hackers pulled off another large attack on the website of the paper.
The web version of the paper Jyllands-Posten, www.jp.dk, has again been knocked to the ground. The web paper is under attack by hackers.
A new so-called distributed “denial of the service”-attack has hit the home page of Jyllands-Posten. The technical term means, that attackers in different parts of the world take control of computers all over the world.
These computers bombard the home page with so many simultaneous requests, that it finally crashes.
So says Casper Bruun MÃ¸ller, teamleader at Metropol Online, the internet company owned by Berlingske (Danish publishing house), on whose server Jyllands-Posten, Berlinske tidende, BT and Kristeligt Dagblad web version is located.
“Over the last couple days, there have been several distributed “denial of service” attacks against the home page of Jyllands-Posten. We had a smallish attack early friday, a larger one friday evening, and not there is another attack brewing”, says Casper Bruun MÃ¸ller.
