Hacker attack blacks out BBC’s ‘websites’

LONDON, Jan 1, (AFP): Hackers brought down the BBC’s websites for several hours on Thursday in a large-scale hacking attack, the British public broadcaster reported. “Sources within the BBC said the sites were offline thanks to what is known as a ‘distributed denial of service’ (DDOS) attack,” the BBC reported. Users trying to access BBC.com and related websites could only see an error message saying: “The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy.”

The BBC press office blamed the problem on a “technical issue”. “We’re aware of a technical issue affecting the BBC website and are working to fix this now,” it said in a statement.
