Aussie atheists knocked offline

Hand of hackers rather than the Lord

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Two major Australian atheist websites were taken offline by distributed denial of service attacks earlier this week.

The organisations, the Atheist Foundation of Australia and Global Atheist Convention, have been in the news down under for organising a Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne early next year.

The attack, on Tuesday, took the sites offline for about 24 hours. It is not clear where the attack originated - Australia lacks a violent religious minority. The group also tried to run an atheist bus advert campaign but had their slogans rejected.

Admins added extra RAM and improved caching to get the site back online.

The attack has been reported to the Australian Federal Police, the Sydney Morning Herald said. ®
