BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
(Reuters) — The website of the Central Bank of Cyprus briefly came under cyber attack, days after a hacking collective said it conducted a similar attack on the Greek central bank’s site.
The central bank’s website came under “some form of a denial-of-service” attack, a spokeswoman said on Friday, via email.
She did not say when the attack occurred, but several on-line news sites covering cyber security said it came on Thursday. The bank could not be reached to verify the date.
The attack “... resulted in some delays in user connections, but generally the website could handle the anticipated number of users for the day,” the spokeswoman said.
Greece’s central bank was attacked by the hacking group Anonymous on Tuesday, which disrupted service on its web site, a Bank of Greece official said on Wednesday.
It was not immediately clear whether Anonymous was behind the attack on the Cypriot central bank. But in a video posted on YouTube, the group said the attack on the Bank of Greece marked the start of a 30-day campaign against central banks around the world.
Hacktivist group Anonymous has announced a 30-day cyber war campaign against the world's central banks after it recently targeted Greece's central bank, reported Mirror.co.uk. Anonymous said in a video that its main targets would be the Bank of England as well the New York Stock Exchange.
