The online media outlet TSN.ua and the e-mail account of its editorial office have been under a virus attacks during the last months.

As they claim in the editorial office, the chronology of the identified virus attacks shows that they target the website TSN.ua. The hackers are trying to gain control over the e-mail accounts of the website’s editorial office staff.

«The available data gives all grounds to claim that virus attacks originate from a Russian server and aim to destabilize and halt the work of the editorial office. In fact, Russian hackers started a full-scale cybernetic war against TSN.ua», the press service of the TV channel «1+1» informs.

Since the beginning of EuroMaidan in the fall of 2013, the media outlet has been under DDoS attacks almost every day. Yet recently, for the first time there was an external intervention into the mailing servers of the editorial office.

The website considers the intervention to be related to its publication of objective and unbiased news.
