Web attack takes out ice hockey game

Newspapers that planned to carry a European Trophy ice hockey game between Sweden’s Luleå Hockey and the Czech team HV Plzen Saturday night suffered a denial of service attack that made it impossible for users to log-in.

The game was supposed to be carried live on the newspapers’ websites. The newspapers that were affected were Norrbottens-Kuriren, Piteå-tidning and NSD.

Luleå won the group final game 1-0.
