MOSCOW, May 11. /TASS/. Rutube involved several expert teams, including a team of specialists from Positive Technologies security center, to deal with the aftermath of the May 9 cyberattack, the website said in its Telegram channel.
"In order to investigate the attack and deal with its aftermath, several expert teams were involved, including a team of specialists from the Positive Technologies center. Positive Technologies experts have been working on this problem with Rutube employees for two days already," the statement says.
"There is a lot of work, because Rutube infrastructure is rather large and complex, and we seek to find the entire set of hacker’s tools in all parts of Rutube, in order to block potential ways for the hackers to come back," says Positive Technologies informational security response team head Denis Goydenko.
On May 9, Rutube suffered "the strongest cyberattack" in all its history, the company told TASS. Technical specialists claimed that the third party was unable to access either the video archive or the source code.
The attack damaged over 75% of databases and infrastructure of the main version and up to 90% of backup copies. The main complication, according to technical specialists, is restoration of the infrastructure, which includes hundreds of servers, each of them requiring manual restoration. Currently, the company refrains from making prediction as to when the platform may resume its operation.
