Whiteout Press hacked, Cyber attacked, Ads suspended
February 23, 2013 in Resistance
February 23, 2013. It’s been one terrible February for Whiteout Press. In addition to the periodic cyber attacks, this independent news outlet was also hacked through its web host’s servers for the first time. That caused the unfortunate dilemma where the more traffic the site received, the more it crashed. And worst of all, Google temporarily suspended Whiteout Press’ advertising account, cutting off all revenue for the cash-strapped news site.
