Hong Kong Democracy Tabloid Hit by Cyberattack

Apple Daily, a popular pro-democracy Hong Kong tabloid, said  that its website had been hit by a massive cyberattack, following a series of similar attacks on an online, citywide referendum on electoral reform. The attacks raised particular concerns given that they followed closely on the heels of a June 14 attack on the website of “Occupy Central,” a pro-democracy movement that advocates for universal suffrage in the upcoming elections for the city’s chief executive.
