EC website downed by 'hackers'

The site, which launched in January, aims to be a central clearing house or virtual meeting-place for
information about European activities to promote safe surfing. The two attacks were launched at the same time
as details of a EU cybercrime treaty were finalised in Brussels - a move that is unlikely to be coincidental."
