Popular online reference website Wikipedia has been down in many countries of the world. The company became the target of a malicious attack. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on Wikipedia's server Wikimedia Foundation. The German account of the website gave information about this by tweeting. The Wikimedia Foundation has been busy with the task of restoring team access following an attack on the online Encyclopedia Wikipedia.
Attackers are used in such an attack by a zombie computer. Zombie computers are computers infected with viruses. Many such computers are commanded to visit the website being targeted simultaneously. After this, the service of the website becomes slow or many times the website goes offline. Wikimedia condemned this cyberattack on the website and said that it violates the basic rights of users.

For your information, tell me that this is not the first time that a popular online platform has been victim of such an attack. Popular apps like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter have also become victims of such attacks. Many times it is seen on the play store that many apps are removed from the malicious attack car. Recently, the popular CamScanner app was removed from the Play Store. Google is preparing a new mechanism to scan and remove such apps on its Play Store, but developers designing apps associated with such malware are seen to be several steps ahead. . Google Play Protect Guard has been designed by Google in 2018. This guard on the Play Store claims to quickly scan and remove malicious apps. Google is scanning them even before publishing a new app on the Play Store. And for this, at least 3 days are left.
