Bitcoin.org hit by DDoS attack

Bitcoin.org hit by DDoS attack

The popular information resource Bitcoin.org is overloaded with useless traffic.

Monday site owner under the pseudonym Cobra reported that hackers attacked the resource and demanded a ransom of 0.5 BTC for restoring the normal operation of the site's services.

The site was subjected to a similar DDoS attack in December last year. Then, for several hours, access to the Bitcoin Core software was blocked.

Recall that last week, a British court banned the website from hosting the White Paper Bitcoin at the request of Craig Wright. Bitcoin.org has removed all references to the first cryptocurrency whitepaper.
