Professionals said to be behind hack attack on Russell Tribunal website

As the second day of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine’s South Africa session was underway in Cape Town on Sunday, the tribunal’s website was taken offline by a sophisticated cyber attack. The internet consultant who founded the Russell Tribunal website says the attack was “no amateur attempt”. UPDATE, 9 November: The site is finally back up as of this morning. It took 1&1 four days to restore service.
