The Times of Malta website went offline for almost six hours on Wednesday after suffering an outage, which developers believe was not caused by an outside attack.

Times of Malta online editor Bertrand Borg said the outage appears to have been sparked by an internal problem following a recent upgrade to the website.

“We will be carrying out a full investigation of its causes once the issue is resolved. We apologise for the inconvenience and want to reassure readers our development team is working hard to restore normal service,” Borg told MaltaToday.

The website went offline between 1pm and 1:30pm with readers getting the message Service Temporarily Unavailable on their screens.
