Conservative PAC Asks Law Enforcement to Investigate DOS Attack on Web Site

Posted on | June 20, 2011 | 6 Comments

When the Turn Right USA political action committee (TRUSA-PAC) launched their controversial online video ad attacking Democratic congressional candidate Janice Hahn last week, TRUSA-PAC experienced a denial-of-service (DOS) attack that prevented people from reaching their Web site. Now the PAC is asking the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to investigate the hacker attack:

Turn Right USA PAC (TRUSA) has contacted the FBI and other organizations after being the subject of extended Denial of Service (DOS) attacks on June 15 and 16. They have been asked to determine whether the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and/or the Janice Hahn campaign have hired, instructed or colluded with hackers in order to launch DOS attacks against not only TRUSA’s websites, but Ladd Ehlinger, Jr’s personal websites.
Less than 24 hours after TRUSA launched the world’s most controversial ad, the “Show Me Your Cash, B—h!” on youTube, TRUSA’s websites and suffered prolonged and sustained DOS attacks until we blocked the offending IP address causing the problem.
