Second APC / GreenNet DDoS Attack – It’s all about Zimbabwe

There has been a second attack on APC/GreenNet servers [1]. The attacks are reported to be linked to the Zimbabwe “elections” [2][3][4]. The previous attack left GreenNet/APC services unavailable or disrupted for 7 full days: GreenNet speculated that the size and scale of the attack made Government or Corporate involvement likely [lost link].

The current attack, in addition to technical changes made during the previous one, have allowed GreenNet to locate the specific site that is under attack – however, they have not yet got permission to announce the name of the site.

I will update this post as soon as I hear more, also am updating Wikipedia.
