IT cock-up – not jihadi DDoS – fingered for French web media blackout

A bit of over-reaction by the media?

But earlier reports by The Independent (here) and others that "France’s biggest newspapers have been taken offline following the 'unprecedented' hacking of French websites" are well wide of the mark, thankfully.

Yeah... I think so. I guess headlines and the "scoop" before anyone else is more important than waiting for the facts. That and maybe trying to fan some flames. Reminds me of the crap a lot of so-called news site play here in the States. "Stir things up some and get more headlines...." <sigh>
