Free Ai Weiwei Website Attacked by Chinese Hackers

Change.org, the website hosting an online petition to free dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, has been experiencing denial-of-service (DNS) attacks from hackers. While the source of the attacks has not been determined, they are believed to originate in China.

The petition, organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, is addressed to Cai Wu, Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China. As of this writing, over 119,000 people have signed.
