+ - Estonia under DDOS attack

Submitted by

bananaendian writes "According to F-Secure Security Labs the government websites of Estonia are still under relentless DDOS attack by unknown sources. The attacks have continued since Saturday and seem to originate from botnets all over the world. Estonian authorities have responded by replacing essential sites with text-only versions and by restricting traffic from abroad. Estonia has seen riots and pressure from Russian nationalists since the relocation of a disputed World War Two Red Army monument. A visiting Russian government delegation has demanded the resignation of Estonian parliament and PM. Since Putin stepped into power, Russian defence strategy has focussed on Asymmetric Warfare and placed a large budget for Electronic and Information Warfare."
