Commenting article: Cyber Attack Floods Bulgarian Whistleblowing Site

The independent site for investigative journalism which published formerly classified documents, revealing that Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, has been a person of interest for the anti-mafia police in the 90s, became subject of a "flooding" attack.

One of the owners and editors of the site, journalist Assen Yordanov, told the Bulgarian news agency BGNES that Bivol has been attacked for over an hour by a very powerful, unknown site - The latter has generated tens of thousands of viewer requests, which had blocked access and brought the site down.

Yordanov assuaged the database has not been affected and the publications were intact.
