I am not sure if it an act of war or a crime, but it is irritating.
In response to FLG's question as to whether the Russian attacks on Kyrgyzstan's Internet infrastructure are cyberwarfare or cybercrime I have the following answer. It is a big pain in the ass is what it is. During the time the Internet was barely working I had to submit three online recommendations for students for MA programs at Central European University in Budapest. It took me all day to get the applications to go through. Other professors here at AUCA had the exact same problem. Under normal circumstances I should have been able to do them all in less than an hour.
