COPENHAGEN, Jan 10 (Reuters) – Denmark’s central bank said on Tuesday its website had been targeted by hackers, resulting in trouble accessing its website on Monday and Tuesday.

The website was hit by a so-called distributed denials of service (DDoS), which directs a firehose of traffic towards targeted servers in a bid to knock them offline.

The attack ended on Tuesday and did not impact the bank’s other systems or day-to-day operations, a spokesman said.
