FBI: “TECH PROBLEMS” NOT CYBERATTACK DISABLE US COURTS WEBSITES

Despite widespread reports that federal court websites were down nationwide yesterday here in the USA due to a DDOS “cyberattck” (and some outfit taking credit for it on Twitter), the FBI said last night the websites were down due to “technical problems.”

I don’t see many news outlets updating their reports this morning. I suppose “Unknown Hacker-Terrorists Launch Cyberattack on US Justice System” gets more page views than “Federal Websites Back Online After IT Issue Fixed with Server Reboot.” Oh well, they are just journalists after all.

Perhaps a bit less sexy, but a more accurate story is here:
