Russian opposition parties (from democrats to ultra-nationalists) and independent Media declared that their web servers have been recently affected by a “murky” wave of hacking attacks, Associated Press reported yesterday.
According to cyber-victims such attacks, whose DDos modality was very similar to the one that no long ago jeopardized Estonian cyber space , were backed by the Kremlin which is trying to reduce the power of free sources of information. No material proof has been offered yet in support of similar accusation.
Such cyber offensive, as reported by the Center for Journalism in Extreme Situations, was based on “vast, online networks of computers infected with malicious software — whose owners probably aren’t aware they are involved — to paralyze or erase targeted websites.”
Yet, according to Political Parties and Media, this attack could be seen as an explicit threat against the opponents to Government , that is already preparing its resources to December’s parliamentary election and to next March’s presidential election.
