Details of the cyberattack that choked thousands of websites hosted by 
Islandnet.com are now in the hands of the RCMP.

Mark Morley, who owns Islandnet.com with brother Steve Morley, said 
Friday he has reported the attack to West Shore RCMP.

An email Thursday afternoon to the Internet service provider claimed 
responsibility for the attack, demanding that a particular website be 
taken down. That website was removed and the sender followed up with 
another email stating the attacks had ceased.

The RCMP have opened a case file and are referring the matter to their 
own technical specialists, Mark Morley said.
