Democratic Voice of Burma (known as DVB) is one of the main information websites for those who are interested in Myanmar news. The Oslo-based DVB's radio and TV are very popular among the millions of Myanmar people. The major source of information and TV footage of Saffron Revolution led by the Buddhist monks in September 2007 and the recent Cyclone Nargis disaster which the international media organizations used derived from DVB.

DVB website has been attacked by a pro-military hacker. The site was inaccessible to visit since July 20. The hacker attacked a DDoS and tried to shut down the site from internet. In 2007, during the Saffron Revolution,, one of Myanmar news websites, was also attacked and disabled. This is a malicious attack and the hackers can be considered as the pro-military hackers who are currently studying in Russia.  They are very often hacking the Myanmar news websites because they are scared of monks and medias since September last year.
