Baltic news agency targeted by cyber attack

A cyber attack disrupted services for 10 hours at the main Baltic news agency in Estonia, bosses said on Saturday.

The Tallinn-based Baltic News Service said the attackers targeted "servers in the BNS network" at around 2pm on Friday.

The agency said it managed to get the system up and running again around midnight on Friday, adding that its services were functioning normally on Saturday.

BNS did not say who it suspected was behind the attack.

BNS sends out news from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in those three Baltic languages, and in English and Russian.
