MOONFRUIT TAKES WEBSITES OFFLINE AFTER CYBER-ATTACK THREAT

Thousands of business and personal websites have been taken offline by web host Moonfruit, after it was threatened with a cyber-attack.

The Moonfruit service lets customers easily build templated websites.

But the company said it had been threatened with a cyber-attack and had decided to make its customers' websites unavailable for "up to 12 hours" to make infrastructure changes.

One business owner told the BBC it was "very bad timing".

On Thursday, 10 December, the company said it had been hit by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

Attackers bombarded the company's computers to overwhelm them with traffic, so they could not serve its legitimate users.

TIM PEAKE: ASTRONAUT'S SIGHTS SET ON 'FANTASTIC' VIEW OF EARTH

UK astronaut Tim Peake says the thing he is looking forward to most on his spaceflight is the view of Earth.

Mr Peake was speaking to journalists on the eve of his landmark flight into space from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

He said of seeing our planet from orbit: "I don't think anything can really prepare you for that moment."

On Tuesday, he will head off on his six-month mission on board the International Space Station.

He is set to launch aboard a Russian rocket with fellow crew members Tim Kopra and Yuri Malenchenko.

Mr Peake's first glimpse of the curvature of our planet will be from his seat in the Soyuz crew capsule after it is injected into orbit.

AUSTRALIA PULLS NUROFEN PRODUCTS OVER 'MISLEADING CLAIMS'

An Australian court has ordered products in the Nurofen pain relief range off the shelves, saying the UK-based manufacturer misled consumers.

The court said products marketed to treat specific pains, such as migraines, were identical to one another.

Research also found the products were sold for almost double the price of Nurofen's standard product.

Manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser said the case related only to Australia.

It said the ruling would not be applicable in other countries, including the UK.

Reckitt Benckiser said it would comply with the Australian court order and that it "did not set out to mislead consumers".

The products affected by the order include Nurofen Back Pain, Nurofen Period Pain, Nurofen Migraine Pain and Nurofen Tension Headache.
