Estonia cyberwar wasn't

It seems that scepticism about the Russian "cyberwar" allegedly being waged upon Estonia was justified. Wired News' Kevin Poulson reports:

An analysis by Arbor Networks' Jose Nazario has concluded that the distributed denial of service attacks targeting Estonia websites beginning in late April were not the work of the Russian government.

"We see signs of Russian nationalism at work here, but no Russian government connection," Nazario told Heise Security. "None of the sources we have analyzed from around the world show a clear line from Moscow to Tallinn; instead, it's from everywhere around the world to Estonia."
