MediaToday’s online portals, MaltaToday.com.mt and Illum.com.mt, have been targeted in a cyber-attack, twice.

The two news portals were down for over two hours in afternoon and later on in the evening as the company’s technical staff sought to locate the source of the attack.

The aim of the cyber-attack was to render the websites unavailable to intended users. It is understood that the source of the attacks on the servers that host the news portals could have originated in Malta.
