"Dim" and FREEDOM websites crash due to a cyber attack

26.01.2024, 10:49

On January 25, the websites of the TV channels "Dim" and "FREEDOM", which are part of the state enterprise "International Multimedia Broadcasting Platform of Ukraine", crashed due to a large-scale cyber attack on a data center, reports the "Dim" website.

The "Dim" wesbite and the digital news aggregator FREEDOM were temporarily down. The FREEDOM website worked intermittently: it remained available to users, but the content could not be updated. As of 10 a.m. on January 26, the website works as usual.

The channels' TV broadcasts, YouTube channels and SMM websites also remained functional. The Gaze website also worked without interruption.

As the IMI reported, on January 25, 2024, the gas supply company "Naftogaz Ukraine" and the LLC "Gas Distribution Networks of Ukraine" recirded a large-scale attack on a data center. Ukrposhta also reported a technical failure in their IT systems. The data center of the Ukrainian State Transport Safety Service also suffered a failure, making the "Shlyakh" system and the official Ukrtransbezpeka website temporarily unavailable.

On December 13, 2023, the state-owned enterprise "International Multimedia Broadcasting Platform of Ukraine" received several anonymous phone calls. The caller threatened them with explosions on their premises, as well as in hotels and educational institutions in Kyiv.
