No doubt that these attacks come from NATO powers.
RT.com has been hit with the most powerful DDoS attack in the website’s history, which reached 10 Gbps in strength. No group has claimed responsibility. RT has experienced cyber assaults in the past, prompted by its reporting on Manning and WikiLeaks.
The Wednesday attack was successfully deflected, but resulted in a temporary slowdown of the site.
“Thanks to the website’s reliable technical protection, RT.com was unavailable just for a few minutes, even though the DDoS attack has continued,” RT’s press service said in a statement.
The attack was identified as a UDP-flood type, and reached 10 gigabits per second.
Hackers have previously targeted RT with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, to prevent it from reporting on various controversial issues, such as the Chelsea Manning trial and WikiLeaks.
