The attack began on Sunday morning, and by early Tuesday, the Halifax Transit website was down for the entirety of the day.
The city’s Department of Transportation confirmed that the website was affected and said it would be unavailable until at least Wednesday.
Halocash Tourism, which is run by the same company that runs Halifax Transit, is not alone in having its website down.
Last month, the New York City Department of Education shut down several of its websites due to distributed denial-of-service attacks.
Halucash Travel was one of the websites that was hit by the attack.
The City of Halifax said that Halucas travel site was also down.
The Department of Economic Development also confirmed the attack on its site and said that it is working to provide additional support to affected businesses.
