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.”
