The official websites of the Crimean authorities and the media today, let’s say, sometimes “freeze”, show errors, and do not work optimally. The explanation is simple – massive DDoS attacks.
A large-scale cyber attack is underway on Crimean Internet resources. Some websites of government agencies and media may work intermittently. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience— reported Advisor to the Head of the Republic of Crimea Oleg Kryuchkov.
DDoS attack (from the English Distributed Denial of Service) is a distributed attack that creates a load on the server and leads to system failure. Under these conditions, users cannot access the site or web service. Essentially, this is a flurry of requests to one server from many computers. And this does not mean that there are many hackers. No, for such “operations” it is enough to use DDoS servers in data centers with a dubious reputation and generate requests from there. That is, it is clear where today’s cyber attacks come from.
