Times, UK: timesonline.co.uk/russia attacks georgia
Hackers from Russia have attacked Google, Twitter and Facebook in an attempt to silence a pro-Georgian blogger. This attack orchestrated and executed by Russian KGB, whose goal is the same as before - don't let people to know the truth about Russian agression against Georgia, genocide of Georgians in Abkhazia!
A year after troops from two countries started a five day war, the co-ordinated cyber assaults shut down down Twitter for a couple of hours and disrupted access for Facebook users.
LiveJournal, a blogging site, was also hit while Google managed to fend off denial of service attacks. The hacking technique uses thousands of compromised computers to contact a single site at the same time, preventing legitimate traffic from getting through.
A Georgian blogger by the name of Cyxymu has accounts on all the websites and was the target, according to a senior security executive at Facebook.
