OSLO, September 1. /TASS/. Hackers have been trying to break up the website of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on a daily basis over the past three weeks, the Norwegian broadcasting corporation NRK said on Thursday quoting WADA director general Olivier Niggli. He claimed that Russian hackers might be involved in the attacks.
"We've been undergoing attacks by hackers every day for almost three weeks," Niggli said. "This is taking place all the time and is very irritating. We have serious suspicions those hackers are from Russia."
He also said that WADA and its informers were getting threats regularly and the hackers were ripping up their emails.
In addition, Niggli had an apprehension someone was bugging the informers' homes.
WADA said earlier the hackers had broken up efficiently the agency's computer system and had thus gotten access to the account of the Russian informer, Yuliya Stepanova, in the anti-doping administration and management system ADAMS.
In the wake of the incident, WADA took a decision to block her account so as to restrict the hackers' access to the histories of athletes' doping tests.
International sports organizations, including the International Olympic Committee have been the targets of hackers' attacks, too.
