Iranian Blog Providers Are Under DDOS Attacks

PersianBlog, Blogfa and MihanBlog the three giant Iranian blog providers experienced vast DDOS attacks on 31st Ordibehesht.

The sources of these attacks are not exactly defined but MihanBlog reported the attacks performed from foreigner countries. The types of attacks were reported DDOS and all were done in the same day. Experts believe the same attacks should be done on the other Iranian blog providers too but until now only PersianBlog, Blogfa and MihanBlog reported them.

On 30 Ordibehesht, due to the high volume of attacks MihanBlog decided to stop its services for local users in order to keep the services alive at that time. On 31st Ordibehesht MihanBlog restored to the normal status. MihanBlog announced the equipment of their servers to extra and better hardwares after experiencing these fatal attacks.

denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the efforts of one or more people to temporarily or indefinitely interrupt or suspend services of a host connected to the Internet.
