Statement from the Department of Justice Press Office
Last night the Department of Justice website experienced a Distributed
Denial of Service attack. This is not an attempt to extract information
from the website but is instead an attempt to stop access to a service.
There seems to be no damage done to the website, however a review is being
conducted this morning. The situation continues to be monitored by the
Department of Justice and the Department of Communication.
The Government is aware of the potential threat of this type of cyber
attack and the Department of Communications is coordinating a whole of
Governement response to this threat.
