Largest cyber-attack in Georgia's history linked to hacked web hosting provider
The country of Georgia suffered a massive cyber-attack today during which over 15,000 websites were defaced and later taken offline.
The attack, considered by local press the biggest in the country's history, impacted the sites for various government agencies, banks, courts, local newspapers, and TV stations.
Pro-Service, a local web hosting provider, has stepped forward to take the blame for the issue, admitting that a hacker breached its network and took down customer websites, effectively causing today's outage.
The web host said the attack took place early in the morning, and that by 8 pm, local time, staff had recovered more than half of the impacted sites.
Panic in Georgia
Today's cyber-attack caused quite a panic in the small Caucasian country, although the attack wasn't particularly sophisticated.
In cyber-security terms, this is a classic "website defacement," a type of hack where attackers replace the website's original content with their own content, usually for a particular cause.
In today's hacks, the attackers posted an image of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, with the text "I'll be back" overlaid on top (see image above).
