The hacktivist group Anonymous reportedly took down dozens of Gabon government websites over the weekend as part of its “anti-dictatorships” campaign.
The Agency France Presse reported that Anonymous took credit for bringing down more than 70 Gabon government websites with a denial of service attack.
“More than 70 government sites (attacked). All their servers and mail systems are offline. The dictators should have been expecting us,” AFP quoted a message on a Twitter account close to the Anonymous group.
The DoS attack took place as Gabon was conducting an election, which concluded on Saturday.
