Kremlin loyalist says launched Estonia cyber-attack


An activist with a pro-Kremlin youth group said he and his friends were behind an electronic attack on Estonia two years ago that paralyzed the NATO state's Internet network.

Ex-Soviet Estonia blamed the Russian government for the attack at the time, though Moscow denied involvement.


The incident prompted the NATO military alliance to review its readiness to defend against "cyber-warfare."


Konstantin Goloskokov, an 22-year-old activist with Russia's Nashi youth group and aide to a pro-Kremlin member of parliament, said he had organized a network of sympathizers who bombarded Estonian Internet sites with electronic requests, – known as a distributed denial-of-service attack – causing them to crash.
