    Russian student attacks Estonia

    For all of you that remember this thread, well it turns out that the "cyber-attack" (i.e. DoS attacks) against Estonia were launched by a single Russian student. Crazy.

    I think you misunderstood the article. He's the (only?) one that was caught and fined (appearantly found guilty in bringing down the server of the party of the Estonian prime minister - possibly in cooperation with others?).

    Apparently it is not a very big news in Estonian newspapers but it is mentioned that others haven't been tracked down (which would be quite impossible if the attacks came from Russia).

    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
