Dawn these days released a notice on its web page to tell everybody that they are under online cyber attack, some thing that is become a regular happen for web publishers these days.
Dawn mentioned that their web page has been under online cyber attack for the previous 3 months. It said that cyber attacks are not restricted to the web page only, but their social media user accounts and accounts of employees members have also been put under critical security pressure.
