Malaysiakini comes under DDoS attack

As expected, Malaysiakini has come under a sustained distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack, which began at 5pm today.

Due to Malaysiakini‘s new server infrastructure after the last DDOS attack during the Sarawak state election three months ago, the site managed to ride the first wave of the attack and remains accessible to the public.

Malaysiakini expects the attack strategy to shift, becoming more intensive and complex over the next 24 hours ahead of the polls reform group Bersih rally tomorrow.

The site will also be launching mirror sites on blog platforms wordpress and blogspot as well as publishing news on Malaysiakini‘s Facebook page tomorrow.

If Malaysiakini’s site is blocked or inaccessible, readers can follow its Facebook page for information on the latest news.
