Attack shuts down New York Times’ site

CNN: The New York Times’ website has experienced widespread outages as the apparent result of a malicious attack.

Reports of the site being down appeared on Twitter as early as 3 p.m. ET, with the site not accessible to many desktop users almost three hours later. Some reports indicate difficulty in accessing the Times’ mobile site and apps.

At about 5 p.m. ET, the Times posted on its Facebook page: “Many users are having difficulty accessing The New York Times online. We are working to fix the problem. Our initial assessment is the outage is most likely the result of a malicious external attack.”

The Syrian Electronic Army is widely suspected to be behind the attack.
