Bitcoin.org, one of the first Bitcoin-related websites, was the target of a major ransomware assault. It was attacked with a DDoS assault, and the hackers wanted 0.5 Bitcoin as a ransom. A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack brings down a server by flooding it with requests. The website serves as a directory for finding all of the resources needed to begin trading in Bitcoin – exchanges, wallets, merchants, forums, events, and so on.
