Twitter Denial of Service and the Georgia Conspiracy

Lucy Griffiths

by Lucy Griffiths on 7th August 2009

As reported yesterday – Twitter Has Denial of Service Attack – the micro-blogging site was taken down yesterday along with Facebook and LiveJournal.

The conspiracy theories have started and Mashable have just posed the question about whether this DoS was targeting one man, a blogger in Republic of Georgia with the username Cyxymu.

All very interesting and, of course, we’ll probably never really know the truth of what’s happened here. Twitter, though, have certainly suffered and will no doubt be undertaking a serious review of their security.

Let us know what you think. Was Twitter targeted as part of cyber-terrorism?

    The conspiracies abound. Was it the Russian Secret Service attacking Cyxymu? The Iranians making sure people couldn’t organise protests for Ahmadinejad’s inauguration? NASA stopping crucial evidence about JFK meeting Bigfoot on the Moon?

    You’re right. We’ll never know!
