+ - Syria off the Internet Grid->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "Amidst the ongoing civil war, Syria has gone off the Internet a few hours ago with all the 84 IP block within the country unreachable from the outside. Renesys, a research firm, keeping tabs on the health of the Internet reported at about 5:25 ET that Syria’s Internet connectivity has been shut. The internet traffic from outside to Syrian IP addresses is going undelivered and anything coming out from within the country is not reaching the Internet. Akamai has tweeted that its traffic data supports what Renesys has observed."
