Website that exposed NDTV’s misdeeds claims to be under cyber attack

PGurus.com is a news and opinions website which is run by individuals who are based in California. The website which is predominantly “Right leaning” and has been well known for continually exposing the misdeeds of NDTV and its promoters, much before CBI or ED carried out raids.

To name a few, in December last year, it had reported how NDTV’s promoter Prannoy Roy had cheated the investors of NDTV and also siphoned off about 53 crores to his personal account. In March this year, PGurus had reported further alleged lies and fraud perpetrated by the media house.

The impact of its articles was such that the NDTV was forced to respond to the allegations. But rather than be dignified, the NDTV decided to resort to cheap name calling by terming PGurus as “PhoneyGurus” and in another case, responded to the allegations by terming the editorial team as, “Gurumurthy And His Fake-News Gang Of Four”.

Now it seems that this website has made more than its share of enemies. Today the official twitter account of the website claimed that it was a victim of a targeted cyber attack:

The website later in order to drive home its point shared a snapshot of the total threats it had encountered:

This isn’t the only time, those subscribing to the Right Wing ideology have been targeted by cyber bullies. We had earlier seen how various Right leaning twitter users had witnessed attempts to hack their accounts. Even OpIndia too had faced such issues last year.

Note: The problem with PGurus now appears to have been resolved as the website was running smoothly when we last checked.
