MOSCOW, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The official website of the Russian pro-government Channel One has suffered the second DDoS attack on Thursday, the press office told Itar-Tass.

Earlier on Thursday, the site did not work from midday until 1:53 pm Moscow time (GMT+4) because of a DDoS attack launched from Kiev. Hacker attacks have also recently hit the websites of RT TV channel, online media LIfeNews and the pro-government Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily. These media link incidents to their policies in covering the Ukrainian events.

In DDoS (Distributed denial-of-service attack) multiple systems, mainly contaminated with viruses, flood the attacked resource with requests and thus make it unavailable.
