Country of Georgia Hit by Massive Cyber Attack

Written by: Richard Sheinis, Esq.

More than 2,000 websites, including court websites and the national TV station, were knocked out by a massive cyber attack in the country of Georgia.  A state sponsored political attack is suspected as many of the website home pages were replaced with an image of former President Mikheil Saakashvili and the words, “I’ll be back”.  Saakashvili was in power between 2004 and 2013.  He is wanted in Georgia on criminal charges, which he claims are politically motivated.  The origin of the attack is still not known.
