"Egyptians may be celebrating the return of their Internet connectivity today, but it seems that a number of Egyptian government websites remain down as a result of a distributed denial of service attacks.

A tweet from online protest gathering Anonymous today has indicated that it is hitting the Ministry of Information, among other departments, with a DDoS attack. Indeed, right now several of the country’s government sites are unresponsive, including moiegypt.gov.eg and mcit.gov.eg.
