Indonesian hackers have crashed the website of Australian intelligence
agency ASIS, according to hackers and cyber experts, dramatically stepping
up the revenge attacks in response to the spying affair.
On Monday afternoon the website of the Australian Secret Intelligence
Service was still not working.
Heru Sutadi, executive director of Indonesian technology think tank the
Indonesia ICT Institute, confirmed that hackers from the country had
launched a successful "distributed denial of service" attack, which
crashed the website.
Mr Sutadi said the hackers, linked to the global cyber-activist network
Anonymous, had first attacked the ASIS site on Friday evening.
