    Human Rights Activists have Equated Hacker Attacks on Media Censorship

    In the Committee to Protect Journalists believe that the recent cyber attacks on The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post are part of the global trend. Hacker attacks on journalists and media PCs, the number of which in recent years has increased around the world, are a cheap and simple way of censorship, the deputy head of the Committee to Protect Journalists, Robert Mahoney, reports Reuters.

    Specialists organizations believe that the recent Cyber attacks on The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post are just part of a much larger, global trend. "We see that the number of DDoS-attacks against individual journalists and media each year is increasing," - said Mahoney at a press conference. DDoS-attacks occur when hackers flood the server information and the large number of requests with which technology can not cope. The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal reported that the attack on their website last month committed hackers from China . "Criminals are getting more sophisticated. Now you can very inexpensively hire hackers who can make DDoS-attack. Security of digital information is of great value, "- said the expert of the Committee to Protect Journalists. "We have been reports from Africa and Asia about attacks on journalists. Such cases have been recorded even in North Africa, such as occurred in Tunisia attack on the media before the "Arab Spring" - said Mahoney.
