Censor.Net suffers a six-hour hacker attack
On January 13, 2024, the media outlet "Censor.Net" suffered a cyber attack that lasted for at least six hours. This was reported to the Institute of Mass Information by the website's editor-in-chief, Tetyana Nikolayenko.
According to her, it was an intense DDoS attack that began around 5:00 PM and lasted for several hours. At that time, accessing the website was significantly more difficult.
"Despite the hackers' attempts to block the website, the Censor.Net technicians promptly responded to the incident, taking the necessary action to defend and restore the normal work of the resource," Nikolayenko said.
An investigation is currently underway to identify the source and motive for the attack.
"Censor.Net declares its unwavering commitment to the principles of freedom of speech and promises to continue providing relevant and unbiased information to its readers despite any attempts at censorship or interference in its work," the website's editor-in-chief stressed.
She added that as of now the editors have no idea who attacked the website or why.
