IMI website under powerful cyber attack

22.12.2022, 19:56

Unknown persons are trying to disrupt the work of the website of the Institute of Mass Information through the newsletter subscription form. Mass requests are incoming from the same address – [email protected].

Such an attack was first recorded on December 20, when newsletter subscription emails started arriving en masse, and then today, on December 22. The total number of emails already exceeds 200, and they keep coming every second.

IMI believes the attack to be connected to the organization's professional activities, such as exposing Russian war crimes, publishing the War Crimes Barometer and investigations of the work of Russia's aggressive propagandists.

We remind that after February 24, the IMI website has suffered daily cyber attacks which were committed by hackers from the russian federation. At the time, hackers used various methods to hack into the IMI website to gain access to the administration panel. In particular, they tried to find vulnerabilities by writing scripts in the form of donations. However, due to the high degree of protection, they failed.

IMI's website was subjected to especially powerful DDoS attacks on May 10 and March 25.
