Website of the Ministry of Information destroyed by unidentified attackers
Information Department has said that its website has been compromised by non-identified attackers and taken off-line for several inches. According to a January 10 ministerial declaration, www.moi.gov.mm has had a DDoS assault or a widespread denial-of-service assault, which is usually a vicious assault that disturbs a host by inundating the target system's broadband.
One of the most frequent types of chopping is the use of DDSs. Usually originating from several locations on the web, it' s hard to identify the originator(s) of your infection. Ministry of Information said the Direct-DoS assault began around 9:30 p.m. on January 7.
On January 8th at 4:00 a.m. the web site was shut down and remained off-line for about six and a half hour, whereby both social media and desktops could not use it. MoI instructions say that the attacker uses IP address from abroad, but does not specify where the attack comes from.
Although MoI said the assault ended on the morning of January 9, with local resident desk tops again able to gain at www.moi.gov.mm. MoI worked with Ministry of Transport and Communications officers to restore the site, the declaration said. This website is still not available for cell phones and foreigners.
Exactly this paper was revised to mirror the fact that it was the Ministry of Information's website, www.moi.gov.mm, and not the MoI Facebook web portal that was destroyed last weeks by the attack on the DDoS. Myanmar Times deplores the mistake.
Myanmar's first site on the World Heritage List
Doha, June 22 - Myanmar was today added to the World Heritage List with the registration of its first site, Pyu Ancient Cities. In Doha, Qatar, the World Heritage Committee, chaired by Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, also listed Iran's "burnt city".
The Pyu Ancient in Myanmar comprises the remnants of three masonry, brickwork and watered towns of Halin, Beikthano and Sri Ksetra, situated in wide irrigation areas in the arid Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) riverbed. The three towns are partially archeological excavations and mirror the Pyu kingdoms that blossomed for over 1000 years between 200 BC and 900 AD.
The ruins are archaeological palaces, tombs and early manufacturing facilities, but also Buddhist brickwork stupa, partially erected stone ramparts and facilities for managing waters that supported organised intense farming. Remnants of the clay brickworks town are the origin of the first comprehensive companies in the east of Iran.
Established around 3200 B.C., it was inhabited during four major seasons until 1800 B.C., during which period several different areas within the town evolved. This includes a huge area, housing areas, industry areas and a cemetery. In the early second millenium, changes in watercourses and climatic changes resulted in the final closure of the town.
Its exposed structure, cemeteries and a large number of important artifacts and its condition, well maintained by the arid deserts make this place a wealth of information about the origin of complicated communities and their contact in the third millenium BC. With these two epigraphs, the number of World Heritage Site totals 994.
Twenty-eighth meeting of the World Heritage Committee began on 15 June and will last until 25 June.
