Web attackers may never be found

We may never find out who was behind yesterday's attack on the Isle of Man government website

That's the belief of the Director of the Information Systems Division at the Isle of Man Government after the site had to be taken off-line for several hours yesterday following an attack at around 9.15am.

It's being stressed the site wasn't hacked and no information was compromised.

However it was bombarded with unnecessary traffic making it impossible for legitimate users to use the service.

Mark Lewin says such attacks are becoming increasingly commonplace but tracing those responsible isn't easy . .
