New York Mag Hacked After Cosby Cover

New York magazine's website was taken offline for 10 hours after it posted a cover story featuring 35 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. A magazine source told The Daily Beast that the website was hit by a distributed denial of service attack. The website has gone back up and down. A hacker named ThreatKing said he was responsible for the attack, but claimed that it had nothing to do with the cover story. “Many stupid people at [sic] New York,” he told the Daily Dot over Skype. “I have not even seen the cover, LOL.” New York has posted the entire article to Tumblr.
