Site providing most accurate coverage of Georgia conflict hit by wave of DDoS attacks
Tuesday, August 12, 2008
A major Russian media source that has provided key coverage of the conflict in Georgia has claimed that its website has come under a heavy bombardment of cyber attacks from an IP address registered to the Georgian capital.
A statement from the Russia Today website  reads:
In the course of the last 24 hours RT’s website (www.russiatoday.com) has endured numerous DDoS attacks, which have made it unavailable for some time. Channel’s security specialists say the initial attack was carried out from an IP-address registered in the Georgian capital Tbilisi. RT’s team apologizes for the inconvenience and gives a list of comprehensive external resources on the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict which can be used, should the attacks continue.
The news comes hours after the Georgian government claimed its websites were being attacked  by the Russian military in a cyber warfare campaign.
