Hackers attacked “Novoe Vremya” and published fake story

28.08.2019, 18:11
The editorial board of "Novoe Vremya" weekly claimed on August 28, the website NV.ua was compromised, as to NV. According to NV, the malefactors gained access to the administrative panel and replaced the story  " Four cars collided in Lviv region: two people were killed, six were injured" with a fake news with the headline "Ukrainian servicemen are the main problem of the Yavoriv training center". That story was removed from the website. The NV editorial board considered this incident as "a blatantly cynical provocation both against our resource and against the Armed Forces of Ukraine." The NV is going to appeal to the police. Fake stroy published by hackers. Photo credit: Novoe vremya IMI reported, the Armed Forces of Ukraine called the fake the would-be blog of an US Lieutenant Colonel Robert Tracy, who criticized Ukrainian soldiers. An English-language blog with the headline "Ukrainian soldiers as the weakest element of Yavoriv training center" was published on August 23. Robert Tracy would accused Ukrainian soldiers of ignorance of English, laziness, greed, drunkenness, poor education and corruption.
