'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Network Solutions, a company that provides tools for companies, groups and individuals to operate websites, said a hacking attack caused service disruptions to its customers.

The company said it was the target of a distributed denial-of-service attack in which hackers direct thousands of computers to access its servers all at once. The fake traffic makes it difficult for legitimate visitors to get through.

The company said the problem was mitigated by Wednesday afternoon and websites should be working normally.

The company, owned by Web.com Group Inc., didn't say how long the attack lasted or offer details about the extent of damages.
