Russian hackers attack Lviv providers. Some residents left without Internet connection
On January 31, two internet providers in Lviv – Kopiyka and Kom i Tech – were hacked. Both providers reported a powerful attack on their servers on Facebook, Zaxid.net reports.
Kopiyka's users were left without Internet connection on the evening of January 30, around 9:30 p.m. At first, the provider promised to address the emergency within an hour, but as of 12:40 on Tuesday, some users still have no Internet. "We received reports from reliable sources that this attack on our network has been carried out by Russia," the provider wrote on Facebook.
"Kom i Tech" also reported a cyber attack: "By attacking or trying to undermine Internet providers, the Russians are trying to create an information vacuum in Ukraine similar to that in their Mordor. We are working non-stop to restore our services by all means possible and impossible!"
As the publication notes, it is unclear how many subscribers in Lviv were left without Internet connection. According to the comments under the posts, Povitryana St., Korduba St., Lychakivska St., Hotkevych St., Antonenko-Davydovych St., and Bryukhovychy have no Internet.
The publication tried to get comments from the providers, but failed to contact them due to the hacker attack.
