Several Thai government websites have been hit by a suspected distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, making them impossible to access.
The sites went offline at 22:00 local time (15:00 GMT) on Wednesday. Access was restored by Thursday morning.
It appeared to be a protest against the government's plan to limit access to sites deemed inappropriate.
Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition against the proposal they call the "Great Firewall of Thailand".
The name is a reference to the so-called "Great Firewall of China" commonly used to refer to the Chinese government's censorship over internet content.
Minister for Information Uttama Savanayana that the decision was not yet final, and that the single gateway was only intended to reduce the cost of internet access. This was met with disbelief by many Thais, and then the shutdown of government websites.
This is not an attack, but a form of civil disobedience.
They are usually orchestrated by a program or bot.
But on Wednesday, calls went out on social media in Thailand encouraging people to visit the websites and repeatedly refresh them.
Protesters have been demanding that the government drop plans on implementing Single Gateway, which according to the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) ministry, would "control inappropriate websites and information flows from other countries via the internet".
the targets were the site of the ministry of information, communications and technology (ICT) and the main government website thaigov.go.th.
ICT Deputy Permanent Secretary Somsak Khaosuwan said the site did not crash because of an attack but because it was overloaded by visitors checking to see whether and attack was happening,
The reported DDoS attack was carried out after the Anti-CAT Tower Mob group, which has more than 127,000 members on Facebook, called for an outage. The group went ahead with its actions despite a strong warning from the government.
