On Tuesday, Gawker media was taken offline by a German dildo attack.
"Mr. Plunkett’s investigators, and the staff at Datagram, a company in New York that provides space for the Gawker servers, will probably never know who led the attack, and whether Gawker was a specific target. “I assume it was done on purpose,” Ms. Holmes said. “As to why, we can only guess."
According to senior industry figures, the strikes that affected hundreds of millions of web users around the globe on Thursday were part of an attempt to damage just one individual - a controversial Georgian known only as Cyxymu.
Max Kelly, Facebook's chief security officer, told CNet news that the strike was an attempt to silence Cyxymu - an outspoken critic of last year's conflict between Georgia and Russia in South Ossetia - as the anniversary of the war approaches.
