News of the day: 2,000 Georgia websites hacked in cyber attacks

A huge cyber-attack has knocked out thousands of websites – as well as the national TV station – in the country of Georgia. 

Some 2,000 websites in Georgia, including those of the president, courts, and media were hacked in a massive cyber attack on Monday, officials and media said.

Court websites containing case materials and personal data have also been attacked.  In many cases, website home pages were replaced with an image of former President Mikheil Saakashvili, and the caption “I’ll be back”.  The origin of the attack is not yet known.
