After the massive attacks on the Luxembourg State servers, several French press websites such as Le Monde, Le Figaro, Sud Ouest, 20 Minutes, L’Obs were unavailable for about an hour on Wednesday afternoon. The cause is an IT attack, not to these titles directly, but to their IT provider. The situation was back to normal at 17:40.
Cedexis company is the provider (a sort of web control tower that routes traffic based on network overload) that suffered a large DDOS attack.
The main French media sites are all on the same Cedexis infrastructure, making it a point of particular attention and a great vulnerability.
