    New attack on L’Avenir, La Libre and DH websites

    L’Avenir, La Libre and the DH websites faced another attack, similar to the previous ones, early on Wednesday afternoon. The same hacker again claimed responsibility for this triple “cyber-attack”.  “We have been stepping up security on our site but the attack took place just before we had completed the measures”, said Dorian de Meeûs, editor-in-chief of lalibre.be.

    Shortly after 2pm, the  dhnet.be and lalibre.be websites were still down. lavenir.net was working normally although the hacker had announced a new spate of attacks.

    The hacker claims the attacks were a response to the media groups taking the previous cases to court, and that they were all designed to show that “the websites are not secure.”
