Hackers Hit Femsplain On International Women's Day

Hackers took down feminist blog Femsplain for 3 hours by using Distributed Denial of Service attack on International Women's Day. Femsplain's founder Amber Gordon posted a tweet with a screenshot showing the massive traffic from DDoS Attack.
She said in a statement, "We constantly have people attacking us and attempting to bring our website down. It’s unfortunate but the reality of our mission." Prior attacks are "never to this severity and I think it's because it's International Women's Day."

"Our community is so vocal about supporting us that tons of people were sending messages out on social media to raise awareness that this was happening. Unfortunately it happened on a day that's meant to celebrate women," she added.
