Russian video hosting rutube continues recovery work after a cyberattack that it suffered on May 9th.
This is reported in Telegram channel rutube, reports Ukrinform.
“Currently, the process of restoring segments of the file system of remote environments and databases on some servers is underway,” the message says.
The company claims that the resource has undergone a so-called APT attack. However, they claim that “the source code is available”.
On the eve of The Village, a source close to the management of the hosting reported that the attack began at about five in the morning on May 9. For hackers it was possible to “completely delete the site code”, after which the video service is “unrecoverable”. According to the source, the attack became possible due to the leakage of access codes from the site. It is clarified that the content was not affected.
Rutube is considered an alternative to the American video hosting Youtube, which is used by Russian state-owned companies and media.
On the eve of Victory Day, hackers also hacked into the program schedule of a number of Russian pay TV operators. Instead of program titles on the night of May 9, there appeared the inscription “The blood of thousands of Ukrainians and hundreds of their murdered children is on your hands. TV and the authorities are lying. No to war.” It is specified that MTS TV, NTV-plus, Rostelecom and Wink were attacked. The inscription also appeared on the owners of Smart TVs and in the description of the programs of the Yandex. TV program service.
On February 24, 2022, Russia unprovokedly attacked Ukraine, began massive bombardments of peaceful cities and villages. Russian troops staged mass terror in the temporarily occupied territories. The Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Territorial Defense Forces effectively rebuff the Russian invaders and inflict huge losses on them. The people of Ukraine have risen to fight the aggressor. The European Union has adopted economic and personal sanctions against the Russian Federation aimed at limiting the capabilities of the Kremlin’s “war machine”.
