FREEDOM websites under a cyber attack
On January 29, two websites of the state-owned "International Multimedia Broadcasting Platform of Ukraine" – those of the FREEDOM TV channel and the FREEDOM digital news aggregator – were subjected to a massive DDoS attack. The company believes that Russian hackers could be behind the incident.
The IMI was informed about this by the IMBPU press office.
The company notes that the attack happened in several waves. The DDoS requests were coming from the USA, Mexico, Vietnam, Colombia.
According to the company, the news aggregator's website received over 180 million requests and was partially unavailable in the countries from which the requests were coming for two hours. At the same time, the TV channel's website received several million requests, but continued to work without interruption.
The company's technicians were able to quickly resolve the problem. The website of the TV channel "Dim" and the digital portal The Gaze, which are also part of the IMBPU, were working as usual.
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.
