Update: New York Magazine Back Online After Being Hacked After Debut Of Bombshell Bill Cosby Cover Story

Hours after New York magazine unveiled its most striking cover story in years, its website went dark. New York told staffers in an email that it was hit by a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack, an editor told International Business Times. This type of attack crashes a website by taking control of thousands of IP addresses and overwhelming the host. NYmag.com came back online later Monday around 2 p.m. EST.
