Hacker attack on the PDA site

Starting from May 12, within several days, there is a continuous DDoS-attack on the official website of the Press Distributors Association (www.arpp.ru).

It should be noted that in recent years several attempts to hack the PDA’s site were initiated, but they were timely prevented by technical support. Now the attackers managed to overload the server, leading to periodic internal damage. As a result the normal work of the site is disrupted, some services were disabled, resource users access to this Site is difficult, and often - impossible.

Analysis of the situation suggests that the purpose of detractors - to discredit one of the leading public media organizations in Russia, to put it in a political and financial damage. Apparently, someone really do not like the active and effective actions of PDA to consolidate media market, the protection of the interests of publishers and distributors of print products, engage in constructive dialogue with the authorities on the federal and regional level.

All the necessary technical measures to prevent hacker attacks and the identification of its organizers has been taken, the relevant inquiries and requests will be forwarded to the competent institutions and authorities.
