Submission + - Chinese Human Rights Orgs hit by DDoS (pcworld.com)

Oxford_Comma_Lover writes: IDG News Service is reporting that several human rights orgs focusing on china have been hit by DDoS attacks this weekend, including Chinese Human Rights Defenders and Civil Rights and Livelihood Watch. The latter works on issues of mental persecution (dissidents being thrown into mental hospitals where they were forced onto medication or beaten with electric batons) and eminent-domain type problems (seizure of farmland or urban land without remuneration when the government is working on a project). A human rights org isn't a classic DDoS target because they don't have a lot of money to extort; anyone want to be this is related to the Google hack last week?
