Pays de la Loire: Ouest-France victim of a cyberattack

This appears to be a second French newspaper to be attacked in the past few days.  There’s a lot that has not been revealed: is it the same attacker? Is there any political motive? What is going on here? 

The Ouest-France group, headquartered in Rennes, was the victim of a cyberattack early this Saturday morning. A particularly powerful virus has disrupted the computer system of the great daily newspaper in the west.
