After Publishing Soros Story, The Gateway Pundit Under Fire By Massive
DDoS Attacks Originating From Google
Gateway Pundit has been under constant DDoS attack for the past two days
from an unknown source originating in California, DC, and Seattle. A DDoS
(short for distributed denial of service) attack is a cyber attack that
floods a website with so much fake traffic that the server that the
infrastructure that hosts the website is unable to function, shutting the
site down and providing unreliable service. It’s a very common tool used
by malicious leftists, the Drudge
Report was targeted with a similar attack last year.
attacks against Gateway Pundit have been ongoing since April 15th, when
Jim Hoft published a widely-shared article about
George Soros targeting district attorney races throughout the
United States. Nearly immediately, we were hit with over 140,000
hacking attempts along with continuing DDoS attacks that have persisted
then, we have been hard at work to implement full protections on our site
to make sure these attacks do not have the crippling effect that they are
meant to have.
the Gateway Pundit site is responding slower than usual, please bear with
us as we strengthen our infostructure against these attacks.
you may notice that posting Gateway Pundit stories on social media
networks such as Facebook and Twitter may not be working correctly, this
is because those sites are currently not able to properly ‘scrap’ data
from our site as the result of increased security measures we had to put
are fighting through this latest attack and hope to be back to normal
will not be silenced for publishing the truth.
