Hackers attack RWE

Unknown hackers have launched large-scale DDoS attacks against German energy company RWE, crippling its website. The attack comes as police clear protesters from the Hambach Forest site where RWE plans to mine for coal.
German company RWE filed a police complaint against unknown attackers who had targeted RWE’s public website, a company representative said. The firm’s webpage was flooded with distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and remained virtually inaccessible by Tuesday morning.
