Hamburg Airport Website Disabled by DDoS Attack
Hamburg Airport fell victim to a hacker attack on Wednesday . The company confirmed this in response to an inquiry from the Abendblatt. The website hamburg-airport.de was “not always accessible during the day yesterday,” said airport spokeswoman Janet Niemeyer on Thursday. The reason for this was a massive so-called Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack. Websites are usually loaded with so many visits that the servers crash. Only the accessibility of the website was affected, said Niemeyer. She did not say how long the outage lasted. No other airport services or systems were affected.
