Syrian Internet Access Apparently Cut Off
It looks like the Syrian Government has cut off Internet access:
Syria’s Internet has gone down, according to wide reports.
Umbrella Security Labs, a division of Internet security firm OpenDNS, reported that a Syria had a significant drop in traffic at around 6:45 p.m. UTC. The organization posted a graph showing that both top-level domain servers for Syria are “unreachable.”
This isn’t the first time that the Syrian government has done this and, in the past, the blackout has been lifted after the passage of some period of time. One assumes this will follow a similar pattern.
