Avpixlat website knocked offline

Avpixlat, Sweden’s highest profile anti-immigration website, has been knocked offline since Saturday, newspaper Svenska Dagbladet reports.

According to the controversial site’s Twitter feed, it has suffered from an “extremely powerful” denial of service attack, blocking access to the site by overwhelming its broadband capacity.

“We have evaluated solutions since then, but the attack exceeds our server broadband by a hundred times, so all ordinary protection is ineffectual,” the tweet says.

Axpixlat, whose staff is anonymous, has been condemned as racist, anti-immigrant, and right-wing extremist.
