DDoS on documentonews.gr and koupandoras.gr

The documentonews.gr and koupandoras.gr servers have been under a coordinated attack since noon on Monday, as a result of which users are experiencing connectivity problems. According to information from technicians working with the two websites, the websites were subjected to a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) cyber attack.ddos10

Through Denial of Access (DDos) attacks, computers from all over the world attempt to access a website simultaneously, causing the servers to overload and consequently crash.

It is worth noting that the cost of attacks can be from a few thousand to tens of thousands of euros per hour, depending on the area where the attack takes place. This is a coordinated and well-organized attack that includes "hacked" computers from all over the world, as evidenced by the thousands of electronic addresses (IP) that are at the disposal of documentonews.gr.

So who has the motivation for such an attack? Is it the fault of Documento's Sunday's main topic involving mobsters from Turkey and Greece, or the successive revelations made by the newspaper about the parastatus set up by Maximou in the EYP?

It is impressive that when research websites Solomon and Balkan Insight published lengthy research on Ayabefe, they were hit with a similar type (DDoS) and large-scale cyberattack, which lasted several days. The attack Solomon received at the time was unimaginable, reaching approximately 220 million hits within 72 hours.

Although the press releases will be from very select to rarely, I said to go ... because sometimes the authors are hiding.
