The alternative site for Sarawak Report “on the run” www1.sarawakreport.org has also been knocked out. The following message appears “Error establishing a database connection”
Meanwhile, Malaysiakini has released the following announcement:
As of 5.30pm today, Malaysiakini remains unavailable after all its servers simultaneously going down at 11am this morning.
Readers were unable to access the website, which runs from our servers hosted at two data centres – TM Brickfields and Jaring.
Malaysiakini’s technical team has been working to resolve the problem since this morning. However, the problem has persisted.
As of now, we cannot confirm the exact nature of the problem. However, the coincidence of two sets of servers, located at different data centres failing at the same time, suggests that there could be an attack on the website.
Malaysiakini is working to bring up a new set of servers. We have posted all of Malaysiakini reports today in Facebook. Readers can access Malaysiakini in full via Facebook Notes.
We will soon be making our reports, especially on the Sarawak elections, available on WordPress, Blogspot and other publishing platforms.
We apologise for the technical problem and we will keep readers informed of developments via Facebook and Twitter.
