Wired: Estonia, Google Help 'Cyberlocked' Georgia
The attacks against Civil.ge are part of a larger set of online assaults, originating in Russia, against Georgian websites. ...
...Meanwhile, Estonia (once the victim of Russian-based hackers) is now hosting Georgia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. And "in a historic first, Estonia is sending cyberdefense advisors to Georgia," Network World observes.
And, of course, the strikes aren't just made up of ones and zeros. The Russians are reportedly bombing Georgia's telecommunications infrastructure -- including cell towers. "It's still very difficult to get a call anywhere around the country right now," an NPR reporter says.
UPDATE: Two Azerbaijani media outlets claim they're under assault, too. And some Russian sites are getting hit, in what appears to be a bit of cyber-payback.
