Hackers Bring Down SCO Website With Attack

by CXOtoday Staff    Dec 11, 2003

Hackers disabled SCO’s website on Wednesday, by launching a massive data attack, bringing the company’s servers down to its knees.

According to SCO, the attack started on Wednesday, compromising its servers that were responsible for firing browser requests for their website.

This is the third attack on the website this year. In August, SCO’s website was brought down for almost three days by hackers. Another attack in May made the website inaccessible for several hours.

Without access to the company’s website, customers may not be able to get timely updates and patches.
