CONFLICT IN CAUCACUS: THE U.S. RESPONSE

U.S. servers for Georgia sites

August 12, 2008|From the Associated Press

The website of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was moved to a U.S. hosting facility this weekend after Russian hackers attacked it, Nino Doijashvili, chief executive of Atlanta-based hosting firm Tulip Systems Inc., said Monday.

The original servers in the country of Georgia were "flooded and blocked by Russians" over the weekend, Doijashvili said.

The Georgian-born Doijashvili said she transferred president.gov.ge and rustavi2.com, the website of a prominent Georgian TV station, to her company's servers Saturday.

Doijashvili said the attacks, traced to Moscow and St. Petersburg, were continuing on the U.S. servers Monday.
