A Danish anti-globalisation group has warned that protesters will attempt to shut down a European Union (EU) website tomorrow.
More than 10,000 people will simultaneously launch a WebScript program to overload the EU presidency home page and block access to the site, the Global Roots group claimed.
The action is for the benefit of activists unable to get to Copenhagen to demonstrate in person against an EU summit discussing enlargement of the union.
An EU spokesman told Reuters that it was possible to shut down any website if a concerted computer attack was massive enough.
But he said he thought the presidency's website had sufficient bandwidth to withstand such an attack.
Police and activist sources estimate that between 10,000 and 30,000 people will take part in street demonstrations in Copenhagen during the summit.
