Efter flera överbelastningsattacker så slogs  Wikipedia ut helt eller delvis i olika delar av världen under fredagen.

Attackerna slog ut uppslagsverket i delar av Europa och Mellanöstern.


Wikipedia har kommenterat attacken:

Today, Wikipedia was hit with a malicious attack that has taken it offline in several countries for intermittent periods. The attack is ongoing and our Site Reliability Engineering team is working hard to stop it and restore access to the site.

As one of the world’s most popular sites, Wikipedia sometimes attracts “bad faith” actors. Along with the rest of the web, we operate in an increasingly sophisticated and complex environment where threats are continuously evolving. Because of this, the Wikimedia communities and Wikimedia Foundation have created dedicated systems and staff to regularly monitor and address risks. If a problem occurs, we learn, we improve, and we prepare to be better for next time.


Nu, söndag etermiddag. fungerar Wikipedia normalt igen.
