A series of strong DoS attacks on November 2, which blocked operations 
of Kirghiz main providers, led to a several-hour cut-off from the 
Internet of the whole country. It was equally impossible to access local 
web sites from Russia during the spell.

The failure of the Republic's data networks occurred 12 hours before the 
start of an indefinite rally demanding resignation of the current 
president Kurmanbek Bakiev in Bishkek.

According to one of the versions, the hacker attacks were organized by 
special services that tried to hinder Kirghiz independent mass media. 
The attack on the providers' resources was made from servers outside the 
Republic.

Around 400,000 Internet users are registered in the region now.
