Airport websites hit by denial of service attack

The website of Israel’s Airports Authority has been knocked offline due to a denial of service attack, the agency says.

The attack on its website, it says, is not affecting any airport operations.

Denial of Service, or DDoS attacks, target a website by overwhelming its servers with too many requests to connect.

The incident comes after a group of pro-Iran hackers in Iraq had threatened a large cyber attack on Israel in response to police actions in Jerusalem.
