Despite the partial inaccessibility of the websites of some of the attacked companies, their networks operate without interruption.

It is noted that some users may experience a slight deterioration in the quality of Internet access, but in general, this DDoS attack did not actually affect the work of companies or the provision of services to their consumers.

As noted in the State Service for Special Communications, this once again testifies to the effective cyber defense systems that Ukrainian representatives of the telecom business managed to build.
