BNP website attacked by 'Marxists'

The extreme right British National Party (BNP) claims its website has been attacked by cybercriminals in Eastern Europe.

The Register reported that BNP leader Nick Griffin is asking for donations to help the party fix the problem caused by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

A DDoS attack is a method used by cyber attackers to make a website unavailable. It often involves the site being constantly bombarded with requests.

Griffin asks for help to "fight back against the Marxist cybercriminals!" in a letter sent to BNP supporters.
