Four Greenspun Media Group websites — lasvegassun.com, lasvegasweekly.com, vegasinc.com and vegasdeluxe.com — were temporarily disabled or compromised for several hours Friday night into Saturday morning, the results of a cyberattack that effectively overwhelmed servers that maintain the online media sites.

Those who did gain access may have noticed that content hadn’t been updated in some cases. Later, after those issues had been resolved, some users were involuntarily redirected from one site to another — for example, trying to access the Sun site and winding up at the Weekly site. This is the result of a cyberattack known as “Distributed Denial of Services,” or DDoS.
