>  --Estonian Websites Under Attack
> (May 10 & 17, 2007)
> Web sites throughout Estonia have been under attack for the past three
> weeks.  Riots and protests broke out on April 27 when Estonia 
> removed a
> Soviet war memorial statue in the capital city of Tallinn.  Ethnic
> Russians protested the statue's removal.  Russia is suspected of being
> behind the attacks, but no accusations have been made.  The 
> distributed
> denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have hit across the board at 
> government
> web sites as well as web sites of newspapers, banks and businesses.
> NATO has sent cyber terrorism experts to Tallinn to help the country
> improve its cyber defenses.

> [Editor's Note (Liston): I find this incident to be troubling on many
> levels. While there is a great deal of disagreement on whether or not
> the Russian government is participating in this attack, the
> effectiveness of this DDoS highlights the potential for third-party
> agitators to potentially exacerbate an international incident.  Rapid,
> accurate and positive attribution of this type of cyber-attack is
> essentially impossible, which almost invites "interested" 
> third parties
> to use it as a means of stirring up trouble on an international level.

> inspired by patriotism and not necessarily government controlled.
> However, as the importance of cyber warfare increases, better methods
