Most of the attacks are from abroad but a few originate in the Emirates, senior police official says.
Police website 'unsuccessfully hacked thousands of times each day'
The Dubai Police website is subject to thousands of hacking attempts each day but "not a single one has been successful", a senior police official said yesterday.
The official's comments were made at the launch of a more user-friendly police website that went live last Thursday.
Most of the attacks on the website, according to Dubai Police, are from abroad but a few originate in the Emirates.
Some people had been prosecuted in connection with hacking attacks, the official said, but he declined to say how many.
