Surasak dismissed claimed by the group of “Citizens Against Single Gateway: Thailand Internet Firewall” that a DDoS attack organized by the group brought the down the webiste for an hour at 8:55 pm Thursday.
“The system went down just 10 minutes and it resumed,” Surasak said.
The group has urged Thai Internet users to join another DDoS attack at 2 pm Friday.
