    TBILISI, DFWatch – Police have arrested a 19 year old man for a hacker attack against two Georgian websites.

    The suspect is said to have carried out a so-called distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack against the news portals presa.ge and droni.ge.

    Police have charged him after article 285 of the criminal code for illegally created and spread computer programs that caused the two internet portals to stop working.

    According to presa.ge, about seven thousand IP addresses were used during a 48 hour period. Some of the owners of those addresses have been warned, while others remain unaware and are still blocked. Due to this reason some internet users still cannot visit the affected websites.
