Shortly after being entwined within a legal decision in the United Kingdom, the Bitcoin.org website has faced another battle, this time on the technical front.
In line with the site’s pseudonymous operator, Cobra, Bitcoin.org was hit with an “absolutely massive” DDoS [Distributed Denial of Service] attack.
DDoS is a cyber attack that targets a site’s host or its infrastructure by flooding the host with request traffic that then overwhelms the system and renders it inoperable.
The attack is the latest development for the site, which is meant to teach and instruct others on the way to purchase & sell crypto assets.
Last week, London’s supreme court awarded nChain Chief Scientist Craig Wright a default judgment as Cobra, not wishing to reveal their true identity, decided to not show. The court ruled Bitcoin.org must discontinue hosting its copy of the Bitcoin technical paper.
