Chinese Internet hit by biggest cyberattack in its history

Chinese Internet hit by biggest cyberattack in its history:¬†Internet users in China were met with sluggish response times early Sunday as the country’s domain extension came under a “denial of service” attack.

The attack was the largest of its kind ever in China, according to the China Internet Network Information Center, a state agency that manages the .cn country domain.

The double-barreled attacks took place at around 2 a.m. Sunday, and then again at 4 a.m. The second attack was “long-lasting and large-scale,” according to state media, which said that service was slowly being restored.
