Unknown hackers are trying to gain access to the IMI website

14.04.2023, 16:15

Unknown persons are trying to gain access to the website of the Institute of Mass Information and are looking for a vulnerable point through the newsletter subscription form.

Mass requests are coming from the same address: testin[email protected]. The total number of messages already exceeds 340.

The IMI believes the attack to be connected with the organization's professional work, such as exposing Russian war crimes, publishing the War Crimes Barometer and investigations into 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.

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

The latest attack on the website occurred in December 2022, when unknown persons tried to disrupt the work of the IMI through the newsletter subscription form.
