Fernando Silva Garcia, a federal judge, set Friday at 12:00 for the MVS Group and its former host Carmen Aristegui, to hold a conciliation meeting in the presence of an arbitrator.

Meanwhile, the company filed an appeal against the order.

The appeal was referred yesterday to a circuit court, which will take 48 hours for a ruling.

The meeting will include, MVS Radio, Aristegui and a mediator, with a goal of  reaching an agreement. 

DDoS Attack
Aristegui teamed with Univison and Proceso in presenting an in-depth report investigated and presented by Mexican journalist Laura Castellanos, regarding the event in Michoacán on January 6th of this year where 16 unarmed citizens were executed by Federal Police

Aristegui News came under DDoS attack, and was down from Saturday through much of Monday.

The news site experienced multiple DDoS attacks.

A denial-of-service (DoS) or distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. A DoS attack generally consists of efforts to temporarily or indefinitely interrupt or suspend services of a host connected to the Internet.

"The attack occurred on the eve of the publication of the report by journalist Laura Castellanos, which is broadcast on Sunday in the portals Process, Univision and Aristegui News, which reconstructs the slaughter perpetrated by federal police against unarmed civilians, as is evidenced in this work of investigative journalism which includes 44 interviews, documents and raw video footage and photographs, "said site.

Aristegui News said that this cyber attack is the most serious ever suffered by the portal.

  3. Lucio you're the bomb!

  4. Before, the pinche SCE could make newsprint paper impossible to get or the sindicato could have sudden problems. Now with the internet the problem is harder to put the fix on. The UN needs to look at this as a mass abuse of Human Rights. Mexico needs to be threatened with being labelled a terrorist state with sanctions on IMF accessibility and Trade Status.

    Fat Chance

  5. Mexico is not going to be labeled narco-terrorist state by the big narco-terrorist states of the world...
