The silencing attempts continue

The silencing attempts continue.

Over the past six months we have found ourselves the targets of incessant attacks and harassment, through phone calls, e-mails, and messages threatening both us and our families.
That you already know. What you probably don’t know is that behind the scenes, our website has received unprecedented cyber attacks in size and scope.
The aim of these attacks is to break into our servers and reveal the identities of our testifiers – those who have chosen to break their silence.

The attacks that have been launched against the site include a variety of methods including brute force password attacks, SQL injections, pen-testing, and a number of different distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. The DDoS attacks have escalated over the past week, two of them reaching 40Gbps, which are categorized as massive cyber attacka.

We are currently preparing a full analysis of the attacks that have been levelled against us over the past months. This data is being examined and verified by a variety of international internet companies, researchers, and worldwide security experts. Among other findings, evidence points toward the criminals being based out of Israel.

“Hiding behind virtual servers and anonymous services will never 100% protect the culprit. There will always be a point at which the hacker will make a mistake, as minute as it will be, which will expose their true identity. Ego and curiosity always lead to errors.” – Lundstrom, Director technology, Breaking the Silence’s server service.
