According to a post of nytimes.com they are the latest victim of Hackers because The New York Times Company was a victim of online attacks earlier this week that slowed down The New York Times Web site and limited access to articles and other types of content.
Nytimes.com was unable to trace the hacker but they confirmed about this DDoS Attack.According to Danielle Rhoades Ha, a company spokeswoman, the Web site became unavailable to “a small number of users” after a denial-of-service attack, a tactic used by hackers to slow or halt Web traffic by bombarding a host site with requests for information. She added that the company did not “have confirmation on who is responsible for the most recent attacks on nytimes.com.”
The announcement follows attacks that were made on The Times’s site late last year. In January, the newspaper announced that its computer systems had been infiltrated by Chinese hackers who found passwords for reporters and other employees. The attacks took place as The Times investigated the relatives of Wen Jiabao, China’s prime minister, and how they had built up a multibillion-dollar fortune during his political tenure. David Barboza, the author of the article, won a Pulitzer Prize.
