The entire Top Level Domain for East Timor, .tp, set up only 12 months ago in support of the former Portugese colony invaded by Indonesia in 1975, was forced offline last week by crackers. The Indonesian government is suspected of initiating the attack, which forced Connect-Ireland, the ISP that manages the domain, to shut down its servers. "The perpetrators of this attack have not yet been identified, but the Indonesian government is known to be extremely antagonistic towards this display of virtual sovereignty," said the ISP in a statement. Crackers had been probing the ISP's systems for nine months before launching a simultaneous attack from multiple locations that lasted for a week.
