from Russia Insider:
Three days after the recent US / UK / French missile attacks on Syria, our website was hit by severe DDoS attacks. It’s the most common method for rendering a website inoperable, by bombarding it with more server requests than it can handle. We were knocked out for about 50% of the next 3 days, and experienced hiccups for the next 10 days or so. We alerted you about this in an article as soon as it happened.
