China is reported to have fallen victim to its biggest hack to date. The DDoS attack in China happened yesterday and brought many sites with the .cn domain down leaving many business without access to their company website as well as other complex issues.
The compromise used the distributed denial of service technique to disrupt servers hosting .cn sites by flooding them with unmanageable amounts of traffic. As a result a number of Chinas popular sites became unavailable.
The DDoS attack in China was first reported on China’s Internet Network Information Centre website and quickly spread to other news sites around the World.
