Phuket Gazette Online Site Attacked

Category: Tourism, Posted:04 Apr 2012 | 10:18 am

A number of readers have written in to ask about the status of the Phuket Gazette online website. It's understood that a cyber attack was carried out last week and the leading Phuket news publication is currently upgrading its system.
The following notice has been issued on the site –
"We regret to have to inform you that aftershocks from last week's attack on our website resulted in intermittent slowdowns and disruptions of service over the weekend. While the site continues stable and the attacker has no access to it, we decided late yesterday to shut it down ourselves to enable system updates. We expect the site to be on and off over the next two to three days, during which please bear with us so that we can be back to you with a Gazette Online that is far faster than the one you've known and helped to make so successful over the past 15 years."
For businesses with an online presence the incident highlights the enormous issue of security and raises attention to the importance of addressing your own internet system safeguard and redundancy.
