Online payment firm in DDoS drama
Online payments processing firm Protx is continuing to fight a sustained internet attack which has severely impacting its services for the fourth successive day.
Since Sunday (31 October), Protx's systems have been reduced to a crawl because of a malicious DDoS attack.
