The official CWT website was attacked by hackers

Unidentified hackers have tried to disrupt the official website of the International Public movement CWT.

The official website of the International Public Movement CWT has been under massive hacker attack from the 3rd of October 2016. Various attempts were made by unknown hackers to gain administrative access to the site or affect its stable operation.

During the day, more than a million of different false requests were made to detect the vulnerability of the Internet resource. Total number of requests for 5 days has exceeded 8 million. As a result of these attacks servers were forced to handle with large amount of information, making the site inaccessible to the user.

Attacks were made from the territory of the following countries: China, Japan, Vietnam.

According to independent sources, the attack data could cost anonymous customers up to $ 5000 (source).

Despite all attempts to disrupt the site, all attacks were successfully repulsed. Today the site of the International Public Movement CWT is fully working again.
