The Harakahdaily website has become the latest victim of cyber attack.Websites critical of Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud such as Sarawak Report and news portal Malaysiakini were also attacked and were forced to take alternative measures.
The website, which is PAS’ mouthpiece, had come under a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack since 10pm yesterday and Harakahdaily technicians are still working to ensure that the site is running.
Due to a real threat of cyber-attack targeted at Harakahdaily pages, we would like to provide you these alternative URLs in the unfortunate event we are downed.
In the event our site succumbs to any cyber attack, please take note of the following URLs:
The following are alternative URLs for the website of PAS:
We are giving this notice as part of our preparation for any cyber-attack on our servers, similar to the attacks on Malaysiakini and Sarawak Report.
Our IT team reported one such attempt last night at 10.00pm, in the form of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), to shut down Harakahdaily's pages. We have been literally on our toes to ensure the move will continue to be thwarted.
