Internet portal InSerbia News was unavailable on Saturday for a few hours due to a DDoS attack. The attack was committed from IP addresses in the range that belongs to internet providers in Serbia, which says that the attack was not performed using “infected” computers (botnet) throughout the world, but that it was organized and maybe coordinated attack for which were used only computers from Serbia.
InSerbia wrote on October 7th about “Valter” program, which could also have been used for an attack on InSerbia portal. The way the network of people who use “Valter” is organized, and all of them are from Serbia, increases suspicion that the same software was used against us this time. Because of the situation we are forced to block all IP addresses from Serbia, so visitors from this country must pass “Captcha” check before they enter the website. We apologize to our readers because of this measure. After blocking access to IP addresses from Serbia, the server continued to function normally. At the moment this article is being written (4pm CEST), the attack is still in progress.
