The service has brought in several expert teams to repair the effects of the cyberattack that Rutube faced on May 9, particularly a team from Positive Technologies’ Expert Security Center (PT Expert Security Center).
The team of specialists from Positive Technologies (PT Expert Security Center) together with Rutube employees are already in the second day to solve the problem. There is a lot of work to be done, but there are already first results.
Denis Goydenko, head of information security response at the company’s Security Expert Center, said that the Positive Technologies team understood the basic tools the hackers used in two days of work.
It’s a lot of work because the Rutube infrastructure is quite large and complex, and right now we’re trying to find all the hackers’ tools in all parts of the Rutube infrastructure to cut off possible ways for hackers to come back.
Recall that on May 9 RuTube representatives confirmed that the service had been subjected to a powerful cyberattack, as a result of which it was temporarily down. It appeared that the site code had been completely deleted, and the video service “could not be restored”. Later, RuTube stated that the information regarding the loss of the site’s source code was untrue.
